Accurate identification of unknown environmental bacteria and fungi is critical to many industries. Microbial identification is necessary for the qualification of pharmaceutical production environments. Once the microorganisms are known, the contaminants that cause food spoilage or water pollution can be better targeted. On the other hand, some microorganisms with special functions have received widespread attention. Common functional microorganisms include nitrobacteria, rhizobia, lactobacillus and ammonia oxidizing-archaea, etc. The identification of microorganisms allows us to use scientific methods to analyze the biodiversity of these microorganisms, so as to better understand their functions and make good use of them.
Classical microbiological methods include microbial culture, chemical staining and microscopic observation, which can suggest the identity of some species, but these processes can be time-consuming and inaccurate. Modern biochemical methods allow for accurate and reliable identification of the genus and species levels. For microbial identification, the standard method is to perform comparative gene sequence analysis on rDNA, especially the 16S rRNA gene of bacteria or the ITS of fungi. The comparative gene sequence analysis of rDNA has been proved to have the highest precision microbial identification system technology.
Because of its moderate size, 16S rDNA can use sequencing technology to obtain its sequence easily, so it is accepted by bacteriologists and taxonomists. At present, 16S rDNA sequence information has been widely distributed for bacterial identification and phylogenetic research. Our robust sequencing platform and professional analysis services can help you quickly solve bacterial 16S sequencing problems
16S rRNA gene sequencing is the preferred method to study the origin and evolution of archaea. Our proprietary microorganism database comprehensively covers the archaea 16S rRNA gene information to better serve you.
18SrRNA gene has been widely used in the identification and molecular systematics research of eukaryotic microbes such as microalgae and protozoa. Our integrated 18S rRNA sequencing platform combines advanced sequencing technology and q-PCR to accurately analyze 18S rRNA genes
ITS sequence analysis can substantially reflect the differences of base-pair among genera, species and strains, and ITS sequence fragments are small and easy to analyze, it can be used in phylogenetic studies among different species in fungal genera. Our advanced NGS platform is well suited for identifying and quantifying known fungi as well as discovering new ones.
Due to the growth time of microorganisms and laboratory work, the identification and typing of bacteria or fungi can be very expensive and time-consuming. Creative Biogene uses established and innovative technologies to provide microbial identification services under GMP standards. Our methods are faster and more reliable than the currently used phenotyping methods.
