Test gram negative and gram positive bacteria in the same test panel
TECHNOPATH partners with Biolog for rapid and accurate identification of over 2,900 species of aerobic and anaerobic Bacteria, Yeasts, and Fungi using the Biolog Gen III Identification Phenotypic technology.
Biolog’s advanced phenotypic technology provides valuable information on the properties of strains, in addition to a species-level identification. Molecular methods such as 16s sequencing and MALDI-TOF provide no information about the properties of the strain.
Biolog’s carbon source utilisation technology 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 our extensive databases.
- No Gram Stain
- No pre-tests
- No follow-on tests
- One panel for both Gram Negative & Gram Positive bacteria
- One minute set-up
- Over 1350 species coverage
96 well MicroPlates incorporate a patented Redox tetrazolium dye that changes colour as a result of cellular respiration providing a metabolic fingerprint.
Our complete solution includes instruments, consumables, databases, software.
