You send us your isolated pure culture (bacteria, yeasts, moulds), and we identify those microorganisms using molecular-biological methods.

So: Simply send isolates

For standard molecular identification we use the sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene of bacteria or the 18S rRNA gene of fungi, respectively. The sequence is used for a database query, and the result (species; sequence homology) is sent as a report.

To differentiate closely related species the sequencing of additional genes may be reasonable:

Bacteria Fungi
16S rRNA 18S rRNA
rpoB gene 28S rRNA
Gyrase-PCR to differentiate the genus Bacillus ITS region
