Isolation of bacteria or fungi 

Preparation and pretreatment of individual samples: €100*

Isolation of bacteria or fungi in pure culture on solid media: €25 

 

*+ travel costs according to the price list of the University of Ljubljana.

 

Identification of fungi 

Identfication is based on morphology and on sequencing of the ITS rDNA, and when needed, also on the sequences of other, house-hold, genes. 

Price per strain: €150 

These prices apply to routine identifications only. If extensive work is needed, the charge will be adjusted according to the hours of work involved, and the charges will be agreed upon before consignment.

 

Identification of bacteria 

Identifcation is based on sequencing of the gene for 16S rDNA

Phenotypic identification: €150 

Genotypic identification based on the 16S rRNA gene, without phylogeny: €200 

Testing for antibiotic susceptibility: charges to be agreed upon before consignment

 

The prices for isolation, identification and characterisation are minimal, and they apply only to routine identification. If more additional work is needed, the price can be increased in relation to the complexity of the sample; to be agreed before consignment

 

Contract research

Estimates of costs without obligation supplied on request

 

Surcharges 

Surcharges are necessary to cover bank and administrative costs 

To comply with national and international transport and postal regulations, organisms of risk group 2 must be packed in UN-certified packaging systems, and must be transported by private carriers. The costs for shipping will be passed on to the customer. 

 

1.)                AIR SAMPLING:

a.    Contaminated area: filtration of a defined volume (e.g. 100L) of air directly on solid culture media for fungi (MEA, DRBC, DG18, MY50G, MY10-12) and bacteria (HA+Cykloheksymid; all in 2 replicates; )
Control – outside the contaminated area: the same as a, in one replicate only ANALYSIS: CFU counting, assessment of contamination PRICE: 150 EUR (+ mileage according to the UL price list)
 

2.)                ISOLATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF THE MOST COMMON FUNGI IN THE AIR

ANALYSIS: Isolation and molecular identification
PRICE: 25 EUR (isolation) + 150 EUR (identification of a single culture) = 175 EUR
Iidentification of the additional strains retrieved in the analysis: 85 EUR / strain

3.)              OPTICAL MICROSCOPY OF SAMPLES (ADHESIVE TAPE SAMPLES, OTHER)

ANALYSIS: optical microscopy, identification of genera based on micromorphological characters

PRICE: 100 EUR/sample 

  

4.)                SWAB SAMPLING OF MOLDY SURFACE

ANALYSIS: Isolation and molecular identification
PRICE: 25 EUR (isolation) + 150 EUR (identification of a single culture) = 175 EUR

 

Identification of the additional strains retrieved in the analysis: 85 EUR / strain.
