PCR Optimization PCR Optimization: In our experience approximately ≤ 10% of samples fail PCR amplification on the 1st attempt. The most common cause of PCR failure is insufficient DNA concentration. By optimizing the concentration we can in most cases successfully amplify the DNA. If we are unable to amplify the DNA, there will be a total charge of $25 per sample. Contact us for a price quote

Gram Stain/Biochem./Coagulase Gram stain/Biochem/Coagulase: required confirmatory tests for E. coli, Salmonella and S. aureus FAME matches. Gram stains also available by request. Contact us    MorphologyMorphology: Morphology of an organism will be evaluated where there is good colony separation (usually the 4th quadrant of a quadrant streak). Morphology is divided into 6 categories:

Color - the overall color of the colony
Shape - the overall shape of the colony
Margin - the edge of the colony
Density - whether or not you can see through the colony (media independent)
Elevation - refers to the way the colony rises above the media
Size Measure the size of one single colony
