In vitro Susceptibility Anaerobic Testing Bactericidal/ Bacteriostatic Assessments Resistance Development Mechanism of Action High Throughput Screening Bacterial Identification Molecular biology Test Method Development

Micromyx has conducted a variety of projects involving the isolation and identification of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria from tissues, fluids, feces, and medical device implants. The following techniques are used to identify bacteria from these sources:
Bacterial identification

Crystal ID (Biochemical based identification system, Becton Dickinson)

16S rRNA gene sequencing

Selective and differential media to determine presumptive identification,
followed by either Crystal ID or 16S rRNA gene sequencing
Growth on Selective and Diffential Media
