FISH Analysis of Microorganisms

Molecular techniques are increasingly being used to identify microorganisms and have revealed polymicrobial processes and numerous species. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) is a molecular technique that can be used to detect, identify and enumerate specific groups of bacteria and archaea microbes in situ. The technique allows for the direct quantification of specific types of microorganisms without the need to culture the cells in growth media.

Creative Bioarray is one of the well-recognized experts who is professional in FISH technologies for a broad range of project objective. With years of experience, our scientists can offer high-quality FISH analysis of microorganisms to meet your demands.
