Aiding to the need of our partners for root cause analysis or epidemiological purposes, we offer strain typing services. Strain typing provides additional information in regards to the underlying familiarity of strains.. For this BaseClear offers strain typing services using either our validated Multi-locus sequencing typing (MLST) for set of known bacteria and/or repetitive element palindromic PCR (rep-PCR).
This fine degree of resolution for strain typing applies to various microbial isolates, that are important to our partners. Quality control laboratories for instance pharmaceutical, biotechnological, food and health care industries use these techniques to track and trace possible microbial contaminations. Microbial isolates may be obtained from sources such as raw materials, in-process samples, the processing environment and final products.
