Identification of fungi
DETERMINING THE TAXONOMICAL GROUP OF FUNGI THROUGH DNA SEQUENCING
The IDENTIFICA fungi ID service will identify the fungi species in your sample.
Accurate fungi identification is essential for disease diagnosis, criminal investigations, environmental studies, food quality control, etc. The identification of fungi using phenotypic characteristics is generally not as accurate as identification based on genetic data. The ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene sequences have been successfully used to identify the genus and, in many cases, the species of an isolate. The obtained DNA sequences are compared with dedicated databases with a large number of strains and their taxonomic classification.
Contact us for information on how to prepare the sample or request our sampling kit. We guarantee results on different sample.
We use conventional PCR approaches with universal primers for broad fungi identification. The obtained sequences are compared with reference databases.
You receive a report with taxonomy, top matches and phylogenetic analyses. Our identification services are suitable for quality control (e.g., food, environmental or health industries) or basic research.
