Microbial identification Process
Basic Research
1. Discovery of specific markers based on species and strain of bacteria
2. Research on microorganism ecology based on the culture environment
3. Resistance to drugs research
4. Research on microorganism that are difficult to identify through genetic examinations
1. Rapid diagnosis of infectious diseases
2. Food hygiene management
3. Agriculture & stockbreeding quarantines
4. Prevention of bio-terrorism

Conventional microbial identification methods, including biochemical tests, immunological tests, and molecular biology tests, requires a long time and high costs to identify microbes.

MicroIDSys® diagnosis method

· It takes less than 5 minutes to generate the identification result per sample, and up to 384 samples can be analyzed simultaneously.
· It features high sensitivity and thus can analyze even with a small number of bacterial colonies, and the sample preparation and analysis processes are simple.
· The database-based identification method offers scalability and utilization to increase the number of identifiable microbes indefinitely.
