CA – Biolog, Inc. has announced the release of the MicroLogÔ
AN Database and AN MicroPlateÔ for identification
of anaerobic bacteria. With this product laboratories now
have the capability to identify a wide variety of anaerobic
AN Database provides the capability to identify over 350 species
of bacteria, far beyond any other kit-based anaerobic identification
product. Additionally, the MicroLog AN Database provides
anaerobic identification and characterization capabilities
that previously were not readily available to most microbiologists.
other Biolog MicroPlates,Ô the AN MicroPlate
performs 95 discrete tests simultaneously. The chemistry
used in the AN MicroPlate is the same patented redox chemistry
used in other Biolog MicroPlates. The patterns created are
metabolic fingerprints of the organism being identified.
The vast number of reaction patterns from a single MicroPlate
allows the System software to provide a very accurate identification.
Other kit-based identification methods rely on much less information
not only provides powerful identification capability, but
also can be used for characterization. With the current state
of anaerobic taxonomy in development, the MicroLog AN products
provide an invaluable tool for anaerobic microbiologists.
Database can be added to existing MicroLog Systems or can
be purchased along with the MicroLog System. The AN MicroPlates
and consumables are available in a conveniently prepared and
pre-reduced format that is ready to use. This format facilitates
the rapid identification of anaerobic bacteria.
