Introduction to Our Microbial Identification Solution

Our integrated microbial identification platform is dedicated to providing high-throughput and accurate microbial species identification service by utilizing a combination of approaches including Rep-PCR, MicroSEQ®, NGS-based microbial identification, multi-locus sequence typing, and mycoplasma detection. Users only need to provide samples to be identified, and we provide the test results containing comprehensive and specific species information in the shortest possible time.

Repetitive-element PCR (rep-PCR) is an effective and fast microbial detection method through PCR amplification of repetitive DNA elements that are widely distributed in the microbial genomes. The next-generation sequencing (NGS)-based microbial identification is to amplify and sequence bacterial (full-length) 16S rDNA or fungal (full-length) 18S rDNA/ITS fragments, and compare the results with public databases for classification and identification purposes. Multi-locus sequence typing (MLST) is a rapidly developing microbial ID method with high resolution based on the analysis of internal fragments of multiple housekeeping genes through PCR and sequencing. We also offer mycoplasma detection, identification and quantitation based on qPCR and microSEQ®.

Microbial identification is important in quality control, contamination detection, root cause analysis, and microbial studies. Thus, microbial identification has been widely applied in a wide range of fields, including agricultural production, environmental protection, laboratory and institutions, as well as biotech and pharma. Furthermore, the accurate identification of microbial pathogens is crucial in many infectious disease syndromes as it allows a clear clinical diagnosis and targeted therapy, and increases the likelihood of an ideal outcome.

Microbial Identification Workflow

Based on your submitted samples, we will choose the most appropriate microbial identification method from Rep-PCR, MicroSEQ®, NGS-based microbial identification, and multi-locus sequence typing to achieve high-throughput and accurate microbial identification.

Bioinformatics Analysis

Our bioinformatics analyses includes these parts: routine identification analysis, composition analysis, diversity analysis, comparative analysis, evolutionary analysis. We are flexible to your specific needs.

Bioinformatics analysis Details
