Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Microbial Identification and Strain Typing
What is Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)?
Next generation sequencing (NGS) is a massively parallel sequencing technology that is allowing for fundamentally different approaches to be taken for a variety of problems or applications for manufacturing. NGS simultaneously sequences millions of individual DNA fragments and can provide whole genome information or a snapshot of the overall microbiome. When studying mixed environments, you can understand microbial populations without the need for sub-culturing. When studying pure isolates, you can understand organisms’ genes and variants to a degree that is not possible with traditional Sanger sequencing. There are different NGS applications and the analysis of the resulting data revolves around either whole genomes or specific targeted genes. NGS could be used for complete characterization of a sample, system, or environment. These applications are becoming well suited for different stages of pharmaceutical, industrial, environmental, and food microbiology.

What factors should be considered when choosing a fungal and bacterial identification lab partner?
Identifying microbes in your facility takes time and effort. While everyone's microbial identification needs are different, there are certain considerations that everyone can apply when selecting a fungal and bacterial identification lab partner. Check out this article to help your understanding: Four Tips for Identifying Microbes in Your Facility.
How can I detect contamination sooner using rapid microbiological testing methods?
While many laboratories see the clear advantages of outsourcing microbial identification, they often overlook optimizing their contamination testing methods to gain even more benefits. Detecting microbial contamination with Celsis® amplified ATP bioluminescence helps identify potential quality issues quicker, eliminates subjectivity in test results, and allows investigations to be completed sooner. The Celsis® assay provides industry leading product compatibility, capable of testing everything from preservative-containing vaccines, opaque inks and dyes, and debris-laden products such as personal wipes. Learn if your product is compatible by contacting one of our experts.
How can I ensure regulatory compliance when outsourcing microbial identification testing?
Working with a partner that complies with federal and international regulatory requirements is critical for most industries. While each manufacturer must follow their own quality standards, an ISO 17025 accreditation ensures technical competence of laboratories to perform specific tasks. The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) issues these accreditations which guarantee that results are obtained according to valid methods and procedures that comply with precise standards.
