DNA metabarcoding for plants

Honey DNA metabarcoding

Analysis of plant source from honey

This analysis enable us to determine the plants/flowers foraged by the honey bees and subsequently used in the production of honey.

Analysis of microbial community structures in honey

By extracting microbial DNA from honey, pathogens that may cause bee diseases can be detected and early countermeasures can be taken. It is also possible to detect microorganism that may affect human health, such as botulinum bacteria or f useful microorganisms such as lactic acid bacteria and Bifidobacteria.

Honey authenticity test

Honey Adulteration DetectionOur analyses enable the detection from the contamination of corn syrup derived from C4 plant.
