Biolog, Inc. has announced the release of its GEN III MicroStation System. The new GEN III System is built around a single test panel that can be used to identify both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. The GEN III System employs a simple one-minute setup protocol with no preliminary or off-line testing.

Most phenotypic ID systems require multiple preliminary tests such as a Gram stain and oxidase or catalase tests in order to choose the appropriate test panel. Elimination of preliminary test requirements as well as a simple one minute set-up procedure saves time and makes training of new staff on bacterial identification easier.

Furthermore, the new system has a much larger database compared to other test kits. The GEN III System can identify 1,044 species whereas other phenotypic systems identify only about 300.

The much larger database is an important feature to Biolog’s customers, who work in diverse disciplines of microbiology. Another major benefit is that the new system is fully compatible with previous Biolog systems, even those that have been in the field now for 20 years.

Biolog also announced the release of an updated database for filamentous fungi with updated nomenclature and an expanded photo library. Using GEN III in conjunction with Biolog’s other microbial identification databases, over 2,200 species of bacteria, yeast and filamentous fungi can be identified easily.
