Introducing our workhorses:
The microbes


Meet our microbes

Beneficial microbes are microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and viruses that can provide various advantages to their host or surrounding environment. These microbes can be found everywhere, including the soil, water, and inside the bodies of animals and humans.

Some examples of beneficial microbes include:

  1. Probiotics: These are live bacteria and yeasts that are beneficial to the human body, particularly to the digestive system. They help improve gut health and boost the immune system.

  2. Nitrogen-fixing bacteria: These bacteria are found in the soil and are capable of converting atmospheric nitrogen into a form that plants can use. This helps increase soil fertility and improve plant growth.

  3. Decomposers: These microbes break down dead organic matter and recycle nutrients back into the ecosystem. This is essential for maintaining the balance of nutrients in the environment.

  4. Bioremediation microbes: These microbes are used to clean up pollution and contaminants in the environment. They can break down pollutants such as oil spills, pesticides, and heavy metals.

Trichoderma harzianum

Trichoderma harzianum is a fungus that is commonly found in soil and is known for its ability to colonize plant roots and promote plant growth.

Beauveria bassiana

Beauveria bassiana is a fungus commonly found in soil. It is known for its ability to parasitize and kill various insects. It is considered a natural and effective biocontrol agent for pest management in agriculture and forestry.

Tritirachium album

Tritirachium album is a filamentous fungus that produces enzymes used in various industrial applications.

Escherichia coli (OP50)

Escherichia coli (E. coli) strain OP50 is a commonly used laboratory strain of E. coli, OP50 has been widely used as a food source for nematode Caenorhabditis elegans.

Escherichia coli (HB101)

Escherichia coli (E. coli) HB101 is a strain of the bacterium E. coli that is commonly used in molecular biology research. HB101 has been widely used as a food source for nematode Caenorhabditis elegans and growth more rapidly when compared to OP50.

Escherichia coli (RNAi)

Escherichia coli (E.coli) strain used in Caenorhabditis laboratories for silencing gene expression.

Escherichia coli (BL21)

Escherichia coli (E.coli) strain commonly used strain in genetic engineering and recombinant protein expression.
