Microbial Culture

In addition to genotyping and phylogenetic analysis, we provide midi-prep and maxi-prep preparation services depending on your research needs. For genotyping nonpathogenic bacteria, you can send us your bacteria samples and we’ll do the rest for you. For genotyping fungi and pathogenic bacteria, we only accept the DNA samples to prevent cross-contamination. For midi-preps, the typical yield is around 400 µg, while the typical yield is around 1000 µg for maxi-prep samples.

Sample Requirements for Midi-prep and Maxi-prep Services

  • As starting material, bacterial colony, glycerol stocks or plasmid DNA can be accepted.
  • For plasmid DNA samples, we perform the transformation reactions for you at an additional cost.
