Products: Libraries for the Sherlock MIS (Agilent) and Sherlock CAS (Shimadzu) Systems

Operation of the Sherlock Microbial Identification System (MIS) requires purchasing one or more fatty acid-based libraries (or Peak Naming Tables), based on your requirements. The Base Sherlock package comes with the "Traditional" Aerobic Bacteria Library. All libraries contain summarized data from reference strains of fatty acid-containing microbes grown under standardized conditions.

An "optional" kit-based extraction method and libraries is available. The Sherlock E-FAME Method contains 2 aerobic libraries targeted at pharma QA/QC customers.
