Bacteria isolation & species identification  


Determine the bacterial identity and enumerate the concentration of numerous species of bacteria. Track and trace the phenotype (biochemical fingerprint) of any given strain of bacteria.

Some of the most common isolates identified and enumerated are E. coli, Enterococcus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Legionella, Salmonella, Shigella, Staphylococcus, Enterobacteriaceae, Total coliforms, fecal coliforms, heterotrophic plate count.


Genus and species identification for human pathogens, animal pathogens, plant pathogens and environmental bacteria cost $170 which includes biochemical description of metabolic capabilities for each isolate.

Bacteria Identification

Wood yard discharge


Follow the species and numbers of bacteria through your production process. Where does E. coli show up in large numbers in your discharge stream? Examine a wood yard through each stage of material processing.


Probiotics and Nutraceuticals


Enumerate and identify species present in all steps of production process.


Environmental Isolates


Quantitate and identify bacteria isolated from water, soil and other sources. We can determine growth ability over pH range, salt content, various sugars, alchohols, organic acids and some antibiotics.
