Microbial ID
 


MIDI'S SOLUTIONS

Since 1991, MIDI, Inc. has developed complex chemical data analysis and pattern recognition solutions.

Our Sherlock™ platofrm is used worldwide to identify bacteria, mycobacteria, fattya acids (any source), phospholipid fatty acids (Soil), hydrocarbons (Fire Debris) and other complex chemical data.

Sherlock™ can be applied to the automated analysis & ID of:

- Bacteria & Yeast (GC)

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

- Flavors & Spices (GC)

- Marine Oils (GC, GC-MS)

- Fire Debris Accelerants (GC-MS)

- Mycobacteria (HPLC)

- Soil PLFAs (GC, GC-MS)

- Supplements (GC, HPLC)


Our sister company, MIDI Labs, provides contract services for these and other types of materials.

Sherlock™ GC & GC-MS Software Solutions

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

MIDI automated this technology in 1991 with the introduction of the Sherlock™ Microbial Identification System (MIS). The Sherlock MIS is used in more than 40 countries and there are more than 1,000 journal articles referencing the technology.

In 2014, MIDI introduced Sherlock X™, which extended the software to complex datasets from GC-MS instruments. Sherlock X has been used for fire debris and PLFA analysis.

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 method for mycobacterial identification.

MIDI automated this technology in 2003 with the introduction of the Sherlock™ Mycobacterial Identification System (MYCO-LCS). The MYCO-LCS is widely-used in US State and County public health laboratories

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.


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