Technology and fields of application
The microbial analyses are based on vermicon identification technology (VIT). This gene probe technology allows the extraordinarily fast and reliable identification, quantification and even visualisation of microorganisms directly at their site of action.
The accuracy of this technology is based on the fact that - after 3.5 billions of years of microbial evolution – the bacteria have signatures which are specific for single microbial species and whole microbial groups.
vermicon AG designs gene probes to exactly match these signatures – just like a key in a lock. The gene probes penetrate the bacteria, bind themselves to their matching target an
