Biolog, Inc. Launches MicroStation(TM) Version of Its Revolutionary GEN III Microbial Identification System



3/11/2009 9:13:12 AM

HAYWARD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Biolog, Inc. announced today the release of its GEN III MicroStation System. The new GEN III System is built around a single test panel that can be used to identify both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. The GEN III System employs a simple one-minute setup protocol with no preliminary or off-line testing. Most phenotypic ID systems require multiple preliminary tests such as a Gram stain and oxidase or catalase tests in order to choose the appropriate test panel. Elimination of preliminary test requirements as well as a simple one minute set-up procedure saves time and makes training of new staff on bacterial identification far easier. Furthermore, the new system has a much larger database compared to other test kits. The GEN III System can identify 1,044 species whereas other phenotypic systems identify only about 300.
