Case Studies

Pests in the warehouse - DNA barcoding uncovers!

Especially when it comes to claims for damages by pests, identification must often be quick and above all accurate. As in the following case, in the summer of 2018 BIO-TECH was able to protect an important customer from high demands with the aid of AIM and our DNA barcoding service.

Integrative Taxonomy as a tool for the determination of species of the smaller arachnid orders

Integrative taxonomy combines morphological species determination by means of classical taxonomy with modern methodological developments like COI DNA barcoding. This helps to recheck species boundaries or search for cryptic species previously undetected by morphological analysis.

 

In a recent study from 2018 AIM could support in the determination of species of the smaller arachnid orders in Peru using integrative taxonomy.
