Microorganisms identification


Conventional microbiology methods are sometimes limited for MO identification. GenoScreen offers solutions through molecular microbiology techniques: for until species level MO identification, we invite you to target genes of interest listed in international databases to help you identify your species:


  • Bacteria (ADNr16S)
  • Yeasts and fungi (ADNr 26S, région D1/D2)
  • Cyanobacteria (ADNr 16S/23S, région PC-IGS)
  • Microalgae (ADNr 18S, région ITS1-28S)
  • Atypical mycobacterium


QC molecular identification

> Quick and validated bacterial identification to the gender or species*

  • 16S rDNA sequencing with quality-controlled IQ/OQ equipment
  • Alternative method validated by the European Pharmacopea (§ 5.1.6)
  • Use of certified database (Microseq®, Applied Biosystems®)

Classic molecular identification

> MO identification*

  • 16S rDNA (or other gene) complete sequencingwith quality-controlled IQ/OQ equipment
  • Use of international databases

*Identification to the species: identity >99% on 16S rDNA (Stackebrandt et al comitee, 2002).
Identification to the gender : identity between 97% and 99% on 16S rDNA.


Identification using specific target

GenoScreen studies your project and offers its expertise for identification using specific target.
