EzBiome’s brand of microbial identification offers the most accurate ID for bacterial and fungal identification in a cGMP compliant facility. EzBioCloud, the world’s best curated 16S rRNA database, has been providing identifications since 2009 with more than 2,988,000 for industry and research institutions. With our leadership in microbial database curation and our extensive microbial ID expertise, we now offer a complete end-to-end genotypic-based ID solution.
Several different microbial identification technologies have become available in the market, however, the use of the 16S rRNA gene sequence for bacteria and the ITS region for fungi are the gold standard. While other phenotypic and proteotypic methods have limitations with their accuracy and frequent misidentifications, the 16S rRNA and ITS region constantly have the most accurate identifications with the largest supported reference databases.
For your difficult investigations, our EzBac-GenomeID service is the best option. Whole-genome sequencing based identification is the most advanced method for species-level identification and strain typing to track your contamination source. We analyze the whole genome sequence rather than just a single gene such as the 16S rRNA gene or any other protein-coding gene. Our WG database includes 10,917 (as of Dec 2020) type strain entries and ready to provide you with accurate species-level identification and strain typing.
Why are you paying more for MALDI-TOF based technology when you get less accuracy and lower reliability compared to genotypic identifications?
