Dr. Bruce C. Hemming, Ph.D, President and CEO of Microbe Inotech, serves as the responsible official (RO) for our registration as a select agent laboratory under programs of both the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA).
Samples of all types and in all matrices are rapidly analyzed using advanced instrumentation including the “lab on a chip” and quantitative real-time PCR detection and microarray technologies. Microorganisms are identified using the foregoing techniques which include repetitive PCR for “Bacterial Barcode” strain typing as well as identifications by GC-FAME analysis, Biolog assays and RiboPrint generation. Sequence analysis of 16S rRNA and 28S rRNA genes allows for the further identification and confirmation of bacteria, yeasts and other fungi.
The MiL, Inc. continues to expand their services for contract R&D of others as well as our own. New instrumentation includes the Nanodrop Spectrometer, Vidas (BioMerieux’s Vitex ImunoDiagnostic System) and the Vitek2 Compact microbial identification system. Our company has also been awarded Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants.
