Fatty Acid Analysis

Bacterial identification by fatty acid analysis holds many advantages. The technology is very accurate, has a high throughput, and the cost per sample is inexpensive. Additionally, fatty acid analysis is an effective tool for strain tracking, an advantage over genetic identification systems.


MIDI Labs offers fatty acid analysis using the MIDI Sherlock® Microbial Identification System - the only automated fatty acid analysis system available. With over 750 literature references from around the world to its credit, the Sherlock® System uses gas chromatography and sophisticated pattern recognition software to identify over 1,500 species of bacteria and yeast based on the unique fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) profiles of each strain.
