AGBL offers Microbiology solutions through Biolog, Inc.
Biolog is a world leader in cell-based phenotypic testing technologies and assays, providing solutions and products to test properties of cells (phenotypes) very simply and efficiently.
Biolog’s portfolio includes the following three applications:
Microbial Identification: Bacteria, Yeast, and Fungi The Biolog Microbial ID System can rapidly identify over 2,500 species of aerobic (Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria in the same test panel), anaerobic bacteria, yeasts and fungi. There is a Biolog System for any size laboratory, from full and semi-automatic to manually read systems.
Phenotype MicroArray: The Phenotype MicroArray technology enables researchers to evaluate nearly 2,000 phenotypes of a microbial cell in a single experiment. Through comprehensive and precise quantitation of phenotypes, researchers are able to obtain an unbiased perspective of the effect on cells of genetic differences, environmental change, and exposure to drugs and chemicals.
Phenotype MicroArray Mammalian: PMM assays are cell-based assays provided in five categories and used to determine up to 1,400 metabolic and chemical sensitivity phenotypes of mammalian cells. They use 96-well plates pre-loaded with carbon-energy and nitrogen substrates, ions, hormones/cytokines and anti-cancer agents.
