The vast majority of microbes, especially bacteria, are currently not culturable on petri dishes. Scientists are using DNA to unravel and identify these microbes through sophisticated DNA sequencing techniques. The DNA of those unknown microbes are extracted directly from the environment that they inhabit. Using powerful computation, developed by the branch of science known as […]

Assured Bio Labs is excited to collaborate with GeoAir to bring rapid disease detection to farmers and grower. The ability to detect plant disease pathogens, and pinpoint the location of early infection in a field crop, such as corn or soybeans, will allow farmers to treat disease hot-spots in a field with pesticides, rather than […]
Assured Bio is excited to announce that they have been awarded a small business, Federal contract by the U.S. Air Force. Assured Bio will use their, state-of-the-art, DNA technology to determine the population structure of a rare endangered species of sunflower that only occurs on the Hawaiian island of Oahu. Less than 1,000 adult plants […]
Assured Bio Labs, and GeoAir of Knoxville TN have teamed up to develop a microbial detecting drone. The drone incorporates Assured Bio’s patented M-TRAP® microbe capture technology. Follow our blog for future updates and exciting developments in Microbiology and the Built-Environment.
Recent studies conducted in the Great Basin Desert region of the United States have shown that skin test reactivity to fungal and dust mite allergens are increased in children with asthma or allergy living in homes with evaporative coolers (EC). The M-TRAP® air sampling cassette was used to examine occupant exposure to microbes from homes with […]
A MRSA outbreak remained undisclosed for 9 months at UC Irvine Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. None of the 10 infants that contracted the infection died, and the infections have been effectively treated. However, the root cause and source of the MRSA outbreak remains a mystery, which is not unusual for HAI’s. Recall the mold […]
