In case of a microbial contamination, it is necessary to determine where this contamination came from, i.e. the root cause of the contamination problem. Since different microorganisms occupy a diverse range of habitats, the only way to determine the origin of a contaminating microorganism is to characterize it as a specific strain and match this with control strains, or other strain present somewhere else in the environment.
For this BaseClear Quality Solutions offers an all-inclusive microbial typing service for root cause investigation. We can do the microbial typing based on Rep-PCR, which is a universal method for both fungi and bacteria. In addition, we offer the possibility to do Multi-Locus Sequence Typing (MLST) on bacterial and some fungal species, which offers the advantage that the sequence data are unambiguous and the profiles can easily be compared with a large central database. We can help you to determine the optimal typing method, quality level and delivery time and help you solve your contamination problem.
