We use high resolution comparison of microbial genomes to determine their genetic relation. Investigations of potential harborage in food production facilities involves the use of molecular epidemiology to determine if some of the environmental isolates are genetically identical. We provide clients with the analysis and guidance needed to take preventative and proactive actions against foodborne illnesses.
Turnaround time: 1 – 10 days
Molecular epidemiology is a field in microbial genomics that involves high resolution comparison of microbial genomes to determine their relation. In foodborne outbreak investigations the aim is to compare the food isolates to that of the patients.
