The MicroLog AN Database can identify over 350 species of bacteria, a capability far beyond that of any other kit-based anaerobic identification products. In addition, the database provides anaerobic identification and characterization capabilities that previously were not readily available to most microbiologists.
The AN MicroPlate performs 95 discrete tests simultaneously with the same patented redox chemistry used in other Biolog MicroPlates. The tests use patterns that are metabolic fingerprints of the organisms being identified. The vast number of reaction patterns possible with a single MicroPlate allows the software to provide very accurate identification. Other kit-based identification methods rely on much less information for identification.
The AN Database can be added to existing MicroLog systems, or it can be purchased together with a system. The AN MicroPlates and consumables are available in a conveniently prepared and prereduced format.
