FISH Course

The use of rRNA-targeted Fluorescence in situ Hybridisation (FISH) is now widely accepted as the least biased method for identifying and enumerating populations of microorganisms within a large variety of environmental samples

Including sludge, seawater, freshwater, intestinal/skin flora, plant root/leaf epiphytes, rumen, etc.

ACWEB has had more than 15 years of developing the method of FISH for a number of different sample types and challenges. There is no sample that we can’t try FISH on.
