Detection of genes responsible for microcystin production by PCR

Pure or mixed samples can be analyzed by PCR for the presence of genes responsible for microcystin production. If wished, the amplicons can also be sequenced - in case of a non-unicyanobacterial sample after cloning - by Sanger sequencing.

The report will include the picture of the gel after PCR showing the presence or absence of genes for the microcystin production.

Please contact us to discuss the possibilities and also if you would be interested to detect the presence of other cyanotoxins.
