Insect Identification

The insects are traditionally identified based on the morphological analysis. This method however has limitations due to the need of trained insect taxonomists within each insect group and at many instances the unknown insect specimen to be identified is morphologically incomplete for reliable identification. Hence, DNA barcoding has become the method of choice for a rapid, reliable, and cost-effective identification of insect specimens. CCB is one of the leading experts in providing DNA barcoding and identification service of insect specimens including urban pests to forest and aquatic insects based on advanced molecular techniques.
