Our laboratory excels in molecular identification of microorganisms such as Bacteria, archaebacteria, fungi and algae. We have performed more than 5000 microbial identification sample analysis till date. Faster turnaround time and accurate reporting strengths of our microbial analysis services. Along with this we also provide DNA fingerprinting, resistance gene sequencing, antibiotic assays and biochemical tests.
geneOmbio performs bacterial identification using 16S rDNA sequencing. We have different variants of this service. We offer partial as well as full length sequencing based identification. Preferable sample type of bacterial identification services is pure and fresh bacterial culture grown on recommended media.
We provide fungal identification services using ITS rDNA sequencing or LSU DNA sequencing as per requirement. In certain fungi (especially plant pathogens), TEF1alpha gene sequencing can also be used for fungal identification. We provide detection, BLAST and phylogenetic analysis under this service.
We offer yeast identification services based on ITS rDNA sequencing or LSU DNA sequencing as per the customers’ requirements. We provide detection, BLAST and phylogenetic analysis under this service. Further characterization of yeast cultures can be done on requirement basis.
geneOmbio has optimized assay for 18S rDNA amplification from microalgae as well as macroalgal samples. For identification purity of such samples is most critical. Hence we recommend highly purified form of algal cultures for identification using molecular tools.
Cyanobacterial identification is done using either 16S rDNA sequencing of phycocyanin (PC,PC) gene sequencing for higher accuracy. geneOmbio has performed more than 100 samples of cyanobacterial identification. We provide detection, BLAST and phylogenetic analysis under this service.
geneOmbio has optimized assay for full length and partial 18S rDNA amplification from diatoms samples. For identification purity of such samples is most critical. Hence we recommend highly purified form of diatoms cultures for identification using molecular tools.
We performs bacterial identification using 16S rDNA sequencing. We have different variants of this service. We offer partial sequencing based identification for archaebacteria. Preferable sample type of these services is pure and fresh archaebacterial culture grown on recommended media.
We perform DNA fingerprinting for genetic discrimination of microorganisms using RAPD as well as AFLP techniques. RAPD platform is available for all types of microorganism whereas AFLP can be offered for only bacterial and fungal cultures.
Laboratory provides a comprehensive antimicrobial assay service for the purposes of therapeutic monitoring and supporting consultative advice on technical aspects and clinical interpretation of antimicrobial assays. Customers are required to provide technical details for such projects.
Biochemical and FAME
Biochemical tests are the tests performed for the identification of bacteria species based on the differences in their biochemical activities. These differences are in the aspects of carbohydrate metabolism, protein metabolism, etc. We also offer Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) analysis based identification of bacteria.
In recent years the application of flow cytometry to the study of various microbiological phenomena has increased, finding utility in studies that include detection and quantification. Live/ Dead cell analysis, microbial count, membrane potential estimation are some of these studies.
