Microbial Identification System
Biolog’s powerful carbon source utilization technology accurately identifies environmental and pathogenic microorganisms by producing a characteristic pattern or “metabolic fingerprint” from discrete test reactions performed within a 96 well microplate.
Culture suspensions are tested with a panel of pre-selected assays, then incubated, read and compared to extensive databases of environmental organisms, human pathogens, veterinary pathogens and plant pathogens. The scope of the 96 assay reactions, coupled with sophisticated interpretation software, delivers a high level of accuracy that is comparable to molecular methods. The one minute per sample set up is much simpler and faster than DNA sequencing and the automated pattern matching eliminates the need for training and expertise in gene sequence interpretation. Provides all the required functionality to support 21CFR Part 11 electronic record requirements and regulatory compliance.
