Strain Identification

Sidebar Image

Eurofins Microbiology labs use state of the art phenotypic (biochemical, serological, MALDI-TOF) and genotypic methods (16S sequencing) to identify and type microbial isolates recovered during testing. Advanced isolate information and strain characterization is useful to solve persistent spoilage or pathogen problems within facilities and to fine tune supplier verification programs.  With our sister laboratories, Eurofins Genomics, we offer Sanger sequencing, Next Generation Sequencing, PCR-FLA, and STR genotyping.  Custom oligonucleotide manufacturing is available.
