We offer services for molecular identification of fungi (pure cultures only) from DNA extraction to data analysis. We use the ITS region for fungi identification. However, we may also provide services to use alternative loci when needed.

We do not handle microorganisms in Category A (organisms classified as infectious substances and are capable of causing permanent disability, life-threatening or fatal disease in healthy humans or animals. This includes samples isolated from humans and unhealthy animals).

Sample preparation: Two (2) blocks of 5 x 5 x 5 mm Potato Dextrose Agar with pure fungal culture may be submitted in a clean 1.5 ml microcentrifuge tube. 

Estimated price is Php 3500 per sample per DNA region (Php 3000 per sample per DNA region for 4 or more samples)
