Biolog, Inc. Announces New OmniLog(R) Combo System
Published: Dec 18, 2006
HAYWARD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Biolog, Inc. announces the introduction of a new system capable of both microbial identification and kinetic characterization of cellular functions. Core laboratories in university settings and industry are often pursuing research projects such as strain characterization, detailed comparisons between pathogenic and non-pathogenic strains of bacteria, or product contamination studies where access to both technologies in a single analytical system will be extremely beneficial. The company’s proprietary method for microbial identification allows laboratories to easily identify and characterize a wide range of gram-negative and gram-positive bacteria across diverse fields of microbiology. With the added capabilities of Phenotype MicroArray™ technology for elucidation and kinetic quantitation of phenotypes, researchers are able to measure cell pathway activities and phenotypes by analyzing cells under thousands of culture conditions. This provides data and insight essential to understanding variations among bacterial strains, correlating genotypes to phenotypes, discovering new targets for antimicrobial compounds, improving and optimizing bioprocesses, and more.
