ID Service

Focus Biotech Sdn Bhd. in-house laboratory provides microbial identification service employing the BiOLOG GENIII Microbial ID System technology. The Biolog technology has the ability to identify and characterize a wide range of environmental and pathogenic organisms across diverse fields of microbiology of over 2680 species of bacteria, yeast and filamentous fungi.

Biolog's patented technology uses each microbe's ability to metabolise particular carbon sources or chemical sensitivity assays performed within a pre-selected assay of 96 well microplate to produce a unique metabolic characteristic pattern or "metabolic fingerprint" for that microbe. As the microorganism began to utilize the carbon sources or resistant to inhibitory chemical of certain wells, the respiration process reduces the redox dye into purple color thereby producing a pattern of colored wells which that is the characteristic of that microorganism. For Fungi, respiration is measured by reddish orange wells and assimilation or growth is measured by the turbidity of the well. After an incubation period, the metabolic pattern generated by the organism is measured by Biolog Microstation reader and compared to the identification profiles in a corresponding Biolog Database, thus results the microbial species identification.
