Microbial ID
 


MIDI'S SOLUTIONS

MIDI, Inc. has developed complex chromatographic data analysis and pattern recognition software since 1991. Our Sherlock™ software is used worldwide to identify bacteria, microbial communities (PLFA), fatty acids, hydrocarbons and many other complex matrices.

Our Sherlock™ solutions include the automated analysis of:

- Bacteria & Yeast (GC)

- Edible/Marine Oils (GC, GC-MS)

- Fire Debris (GC-MS)

- Mycobacteria (HPLC)

- Soil Phospholipids (GC, GC-MS)

- Supplements (GC, GC-MS, HPLC)

Our sister company (MIDI Labs) provides contract services for microbial identification, probiotic enumeration, fatty acid analysis (FAME) and phospholipid fatty acid analysis (PLFA).

Sherlock™ Microbial ID
GC & GC-MS Solutions

Fatty acid analysis by Gas Chromatography has been used for more than 30 years as a rapid and easy-to-use method for microbial ID and soil phospholipid microbial community analysis (PLFA).

We are the only company to commercialize this technology for global use. The Sherlock™ Microbial Identification System (MIS) is used in more than 40 countries and there are more than 1,000 journal articles referencing the technology.

The Sherlock software includes many powerful tools, including: Precision Peak Naming, Library Generation (LGS) and Electronic Records & Signatures (ERS).

In 2014, we created a new platform, Sherlock X™, which has been extended to complex datasets from GC-MS instruments. So far, Sherlock X has been used for fire debris, omega-3, and PLFA analysis.

For research use only.  Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Sherlock™ Mycobacteria ID System (MYCO-LCS)

Mycolic acid analysis by
High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)
has been used for more
than 20 years as a rapid
and easy-to-use method
for routine mycobacterial identification.

We are the only company to commercialize this technology for global use. The system is used in state and county public health laboratories, as well as TB Reference Centers.

The MYCO-LCS identifies
25 mycobacterial species and more than 35 species from
related genera, including:
M. tuberculosis, Corynebacteria, Dietzia, Gordonia, Nocardia, Rhodococcus and Tsukamurella.

The MYCO-LCS can separate M. bovis BCG from the MTB complex and M. scrofulaceum from MAI.


The Sherlock™ MYCO-LCS uses the same procedure to identify all mycobacterial and non-mycobacterial species in less than 30 minutes from pure culture.

For research use only.  Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
