Microbial Identification

Biolog for Identification Services

For decades our lab has set the industry standards—we developed and refined many identification techniques that have become today’s standards.


Regarding food safety & probiotics, enumeration is essential for product quality.

Ensuring potency and accuracy can give you an edge over the competition. By offering enumeration testing or total plate count services (TPC), we ensure the bases are covered to determine viability and identity.

Biolog for Phenotyping Services

Not only has Biolog Lab Services moved to a shiny new lab in Newark, DE, but we are now offering phenotypic identification and analysis services.

We use our newest innovation, the Odin™ platform, combined with Phenotype MicroArrays will help you classify and differentiate metabolism and respiration from biomass production (if that’s important to you). We customize the experimental conditions for your specific strains and meticulously gather the data, which is summarized in a detailed report.

Our phenotyping services offer a classic and reliable method to characterize microbial strains. What’s more, with our multiomic approach, you can be confident in obtaining the precise identification you seek.

Advantages of multiomic microbial identification.

We cover multiomic identification: unveiling the identities of bacteria, yeast, and fungi from all angles.

Genotypic Analysis: Deciphering genetic codes with Sanger DNA Sequencing. Sequencing of ribosomal RNA regions of bacteria and fungi.

Proteotypic Profiling: Exploring protein landscapes through Bruker MALDI-TOF. Analysis of ribosomal proteins.

Phenotypic Insights: Odin’s lens into microbial behaviors. Analysis of biochemical reactions, acids and salt tolerance, metabolism, fermentation, etc.
We review Biolog’s solutions to identify thousands of aerobes, anaerobes, yeast, and filamentous fungi.

Biolog for Fungal Identification

Lab Services now offers a customized approach to challenging filamentous fungal ID.

With our novel method for subculturing, sample lysis and proprietary media that reduces contamination risk, we can now:

– effectively prepare the fungal samples

– ensure quick, effective, and accurate sample identification

– all in an average of 3 business days, or as fast as next day

Rapid Microbial Identification with MALDI-TOF Technology: Navigating the Fast Lane

In a world where speed, accuracy, and affordability rarely align, the emergence of MALDI-TOF technology has rewritten the rules for microbial identification. Join us for an insightful webinar as we delve into microbial identification, now revolutionized by MALDI-TOF. At Biolog Lab Services, we’ve seamlessly integrated this cutting-edge technology into our microbial identification and characterization suite. In this session, we’ll introduce you to the power of MALDI-TOF, highlighting its suitability for microbial identification, and shed light on how our implementation of this technique synergizes with other contamination identification and microbial classification methods.
