DNA Sequencing

Microbial Identification based on gene sequencing has become the quintessential tool for microbiologists. For example, taxonomy found within the second edition of Bergey's Manual of Systematic Bacteriology is based on 16S rRNA gene sequence data.


MIDI Labs offers 16S and 28S gene sequencing for identification using Applied Biosystem's MicroSeq® system. As co-developer of MicroSeq's® microbial libraries, MIDI Labs has more experience than any other laboratory. This experience gives us the edge in resolving issues concerning sequencing and report interpretation.


In an effort to remain one step ahead of the competition MIDI Labs now uses Sherlock® DNA software for Sequencing data analysis. This analysis offers updated taxonomy, an expanded library and the ability to produce polyphasic reports.
