Microbial Resource Management offers rapid and effective analysis and their application in real life settings
We specialize in the molecular analysis of probiotic (and other) microbial mixtures. This is achieved by means of Denaturing Gradient Gel Electrophoresis or Illumina Next Generation Sequencing, depending on the sample type. The analysis permits the verification of the purity, the identity, and/or the abundance of the different bacterial strains. This information can be coupled to the functional expression of the bacteria (conversion/production of compounds, odour generation, die-off of bacteria, etc.). The integration of different techniques is known as microbial resource management (MRM) and allows for (verification of) application of these (probiotic) microbial mixtures.
We allow rapid and effective analysis of bacteria(l) (mixtures) and their application in real-life settings.
