Microbial Identification

Microgenetix supplies accurate, cost-effective, and reliable microbial identification services for the identification of bacteria, yeasts, and fungi. Microgenetix can identify bacterial and fungal isolates from a small sample of pure culture. Microgenetix provides all the steps necessary for the isolation, purification, amplification, and cycle sequencing of organisms, with resulting extension products sequenced with our AB3130xl 16 capillary sequencer.
