    The Experts in Microbial Identification and More

    As a Veteran-Owned small business,we are proud of our history of developing and using innovative biotechnology for microbial analysis. The MIDI Group began with the development of the Sherlock Microbial Identification System in 1985, a cutting-edge automated technique. Even then, we provided quick and reliable microbial identification, a significant advantage over subjective assays typically used in microbiology labs at the time.

    In 1995, MIDI Labs was formed as a sister company to MIDI Inc. and Microbial ID. Through the partnership with PE Applied Biosystems™, we were instrumental in the development of DNA Sequencing, a new identification method. MIDI Labs was responsible for much of the database building and beta testing due to our extensive knowledge in taxonomy, identification techniques, and large culture collection.
