Microbial ID Services

Clients can either send us bacterial/fungal colonies on an agar plate or in liquid culture. Both bacterial and fungal isolates need to be pure cultures. Colonies on the agar plates should be well separated so we can pick up a single colony. Liquid culture should be centrifuged with the cell pellets sent to us in either 15 ml culture tubes or 1.7 ml eppendorf tubes.

Declaration: Laragen is not a clinical lab and is not equipped to deal with pathogenic microbes. We do not accept pathogenic microbes.
