Comparative DNA sequencing of the 16S rRNA gene in bacteria and the ITS2 rRNA region in fungi is recognized across the industry as the most accurate and reproducible method for identifying unknown microorganisms. AccuGENX-ID® utilizes Sanger sequencing technology through our BacSeq bacterial identification and FunITS fungal identification to produce reliable results in as little as six hours.
The Sanger microbial sequencing technique is ideal for microbial identification because health or growth conditions of the isolate will not affect the identification result. Microbial sequencing and samples can be viable or nonviable cultures, or simply genomic DNA from your microbe. The resulting DNA sequence of each isolate submitted for identification is compared to the validated Accugenix® microbial library — the industry’s most comprehensive, relevant, and up-to-date sequencing database for environmental monitoring.
