For rapid identification of bacteria, yeast, and filamentous fungi. The GEN III MicroStation System has the capacity to read all Biolog MicroPlate™ configurations.

The MicroStation™ ID System is a versatile system, with the ability to identify and characterize a wide range of environmental and pathogenic organisms across diverse fields of microbiology. Using all Biolog databases, over 2650 species of bacteria, yeast and filamentous fungi can be identified in as little as 2 hours.

Just prepare a cell suspension and inoculate the appropriate MicroPlate™.  After inoculation and incubation, the MicroPlate™ is placed into the MicroStation™ Reader for analysis. The unique metabolic pattern generated by the organism is recorded and compared to hundreds of identification profiles in a corresponding Biolog Database. The versatile plate reader uses dual wavelength readings to quantify color reactions in the MicroPlate™ wells, adding consistency and accuracy when reading the reaction patterns. Biolog’s patented redox chemistry makes use of different carbon compounds including sugars, carboxylic acids, amino acids and peptides to provide an unparalleled wealth of discriminating biochemical characterizations.

This diverse set of tests enables our systems to identify microorganisms that other kit-based methods misidentify or fail to identify. The MicroStation™ System, as well as the OmniLog® System, has extensive applications also for microbial community analysis in soil, water, biofilms and other environments.
