MOLECULAR Testing

Perfectus Biomed specialise in qPCR technology.

We provide molecular support in addition to our typical culture-based studies, providing pathway targeting and screening of samples for the presence of pathogenic viruses and bacteria. Molecular testing services include primer design, qPCR assessment of mixed species cultures, and screening and regulation of biofilm forming genes in response to test products. For a fill list of our molecular services, please get in touch.

 If you would like futher information on any of the below or if you would like to discuss in detail how we can support your work, please get in touch .

 Molecular Testing IS USED FOR:

  • Primer design
  • Cellular protein expression levels
  • Assessment of bacterial ratios in multispecies studies
  • Screening for the presence/absence of biofilm forming genes
  • Screening for the presence/persistence of resistance genes within a population and in response to a treatment
  • Quantification of non-viable organisms
  • Quantification of organisms below the low-kill limit of detection
  • Identifying the presence of target bacteria/yeast within a sample
  • Identification of target virus within a sample
  • Other – please ask.
