MicrobiType services are available for:

Strain typing provides the critical information that food processors need “to identify outbreaks, trace contamination within an establishment, and investigate potential harborage sites” (USDA-FSIS, 2014).

E. coli (STEC)
Salmonella enterica
Listeria monocytogenes
Campylobacter species
Yersinia enterocolitica
Shigella species

Vibrio parahaemolyticus

Clostridium botulinum

Clostridium perfringens
Bacillus cereus

Foodborne Pathogens

Effective infection control requires knowing if that HAI is endogenous in origin or nosocomially transmitted...and the only way to know is through strain typing.

Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA
Escherichia coli
Klebsiella pneumoniae
Staphylococcus epidermidis
Streptococcus pneumoniae
Acinetobacter baumanii

Enterococcus species

Candida glabrata

Candida auris

Clostridium difficile

Klebsiella oxytoca

Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Serratia marcescens
Proteus mirabilis
Burkholderia cepacia

Healthcare-associated pathogens
Community-acquired pathogens

Environmental to sexually transmitted...routine surveillance to outbreak detection and investigation… strain typing provides the critical information you need.

Neisseria gonorrhoeae 
Neisseria mengitidis

Shigella species
Streptococcus pneumoniae
Streptococcus pyogenes
Legionella pneumophila

Bordetella pertussis
Haemophilus influenzae

Chlamydia trachomatis

Treponema pallidum

Yersinia pestis

Emergence and spread of antibiotic resistant microbes represent major threats to public health. While susceptibility assays can detect resistance, genotyping is required to determine its mechanism and explore its epidemiology.

ESBLs (beta-lactams)
carbapenemases (CRE)
SCCmec (beta-lactams, MRSA)
vanA vanB (vancomycin, VRE)
gyrA (quinolones)
23S rRNA (macrolides, linezolid)
FKS (echinocandins, yeast)

Antibiotic Resistance Mechanisms
