MicroSEQ® ID Microbial Identification Software allows you to easily identify and classify unidentified bacterial or fungal sequences by comparing them to a validated microbial library. This bundled version includes the bacterial and fungal sequence libraries.

A validated library of over 2300 microbial 16S rDNA sequences help ensure you get the answers you need

• Automatically identify unknown specimens
• Run plates on Applied Biosystems® 3500 Series genetic analyzers directly via the MicroSEQ® ID Software
• MicroSEQ® system is a complete integrated solution, including security, audit, and e-signature features
• Qualification and validation support

Confidently Identify Microbes
The MicroSEQ® system comprises bacterial libraries of 500 bp 16S rDNA sequences and over 2300 validated entries--including extensive coverage of gram-negative nonfermenters, Bacillus, Coryneforms, Mycobacteria, and Staphylococcus. A fungal library containing more than 1100 entries is also included for fungal identification. To help ensure accurate identification of the species of your sequences, we rigorously validate all library entries. And unlike other widely available databases, MicroSEQ® libraries contain only correctly identified organisms and quality-controlled sequences derived from type strains of preeminent culture collections. The libraries also support sequence polymorphisms, and include bacterial Category A biothreat agents.

Automatically Identify Unknown Specimens
Reviewing each specimen in a project file to make a manual identification call can be tedious and time consuming. The new Auto-ID feature uses a set of editable parameters to automatically identify unknown specimens. The results table is displayed in the report, and an editable comments field allows additional information or manual identifications to be entered into the same table.

Run Plates on 3500/3500xL Instruments Directly via the MicroSEQ® ID Software
Applied Biosystems® 3500 Series Genetic Analyzer users are now able to run plates on these instruments directly via the MicroSEQ® ID Software user interface, without needing Autoanalysis Manager. A single software wizard enables you to set up projects, specimens, and plates; adjust the plate layout via drag and drop; start and monitor the run; and review results.

The MicroSEQ® System: A Complete, Integrated Solution
Streamlining every step in microbial identification, the Applied Biosystems® MicroSEQ® system combines the advantages of MicroSEQ® ID Software with easy to use PrepMan® Ultra sample preparation reagents and protocols, MicroSEQ® bacterial and fungal application kits, and industry-leading thermal cyclers and sequencing systems. To help ensure optimal performance and system-wide integration, we develop and test all components of the system together. The MicroSEQ® ID Software also includes security, audit, and electronic signature features enabling the software to smoothly integrate into your workflow.

Qualification and Validation Support
To help ensure seamless integration into your laboratory, from installation to routine operation, we offer comprehensive installation and operational qualification (IQ/OQ) and validation support services.
