Microbial Identification

Rapidly and accurately identify over 2,900 species of aerobic and anaerobic Bacteria, Yeasts, and Fungi.

Biolog’s advanced phenotypic technology provides valuable information on the properties of strains, in addition to a species-level identification. Molecular methods such as 16s sequencing and MALDI-TOF provide no information about the properties of the strain. Biolog’s carbon source utilization technology identifies environmental and pathogenic microorganisms by producing a characteristic pattern or “metabolic fingerprint” from discrete test reactions performed within a 96 well microplate. Culture suspensions are tested with a panel of pre-selected assays, then incubated, read and compared to our extensive databases.

Getting the answers you need has never been easier

  • Simple one minute set-up procedure
  • Gram stain and other pre-tests not needed
  • Manual, semi-automated and automated solutions for any level of throughput

96 well MicroPlates incorporate a patented Redox tetrazolium dye that changes color as a result of cellular respiration providing a metabolic fingerprint.

Our complete solution includes instruments, consumables, databases, software.

Databases have been designed specifically to support the needs of environmental monitoring, QC microbiology, water and waste-water testing, agricultural and veterinary applications, and other non-clinical needs.

MicroPlates and Databases:

GEN III (Aerobes)

AN (Anaerobes)

YT (Yeasts)

FF (Filamentous Fungi)


Instrument Offerings:


Fully automated high throughput aerobic identification


Semi-automated identification for bacteria, yeast, and filamentous fungi


Designed for teaching and low volume applications

Combine the OmniLog and MicroStation to enable identification of aerobic and anaerobic bacteria, yeast, and filamentous fungi.  This combination is the OmniLog Plus System.
