Since 2004, Laragen has provided bacterial and fungal identification by rDNA sequences.
For sample preparation, clients can either send us bacterial or fungal colonies on an agar plate or in liquid culture. Isolates for both bacterial and fungal samples must be pure cultures. Colonies on the agar plates should be well separated, so we can pick up a single colony. Liquid cultures should be centrifuged with the cell pellets sent to us in either 15 ml culture tubes or 1.7 ml Eppendorf tubes.
Laragen provides research and GLP grade (compliant with FDA CFR 21, Part 58) microbial identification by DNA sequencing.
Declaration: Laragen is not a clinical laboratory and is not equipped to deal with pathogenic microbes. We only accept BSL-1 and BSL-2 (BioSafety Level 1 and 2) bacteria and fungi. We do NOT accept BSL-3 and BSL-4 bacteria and fungi.
