Identification of bacteria and fungi can be very time consuming, because of growth time and lab work. BaseClear offers innovative services for fast and reliable identification of microorganisms. BaseClear is specialized in fast identifications of micro-organisms using molecular methods such as DNA sequencing (MicroSEQ® system or in-house developed protocols) or MALDI-TOF technology (using the Vitek® MS from bioMérieux). We have many satisfied customers working in for instance food, water, biotech and pharmaceutical industries.
BaseClear offers identification services using the revolutionary MicroSEQ® system from Applied Biosystems for identification of microbiological samples, based on PCR and DNA sequencing of the 16S rRNA for bacteria or the D2-LSU region for fungal samples. This system provides accurate and reproducible results without the need for time-consuming growth. It is suitable for fast screening (1 day for our fast service!) of even the most difficult samples.
In addition BaseClear offers identification services using the VITEK® MS from BioMérieux. By acquiring the VITEK® MS we have expanded our microbial service package with a fast and reliable identification platform. This proteotypic technology is 30-40% more accurate compared to existing phenotypic methods. Additional advantages of this system are the delivery time (possible within a couple of hours!) and the costs compared to other identification methods.
BaseClear offers GMP Microbial identifications through their joint venture ProBase Pharma. For GMP Bacterial identifications visit www.probasepharma.com/nl/Services/Bacterial-Identification-Services and for GMP Fungal identifications visit www.probasepharma.com/nl/Services/Fungal-Identification-Services.
Richard is director of the Sanger sequencing and microbiology department. In addition he is site-manager of ProBase Pharma, the joint venture of BaseClear and MicroSafe for GMP accredited rapid molecular testing.
For our production it is important to check for microbiological contamination and to subsequent identify these on the basis of its DNA. BaseClear does excellent work and always sticks to the agreement made. I always receive a response within an hour.
