FASTFISH-ID and FASTSHARK-ID converts an standard, FDA-approved DNA sequence commonly used for species identification (COI DNA Barcode) into a species-specific digital signature.  Species-specific digital signatures are then automatically compared to a reference database of verified species and species variants signatures at the  FASTFISH-ID Answers website for immediate species identification.

The same set of reagents identifies any species of commercial fish.  FASTFISH-ID is currently validated for identification of 43 species of fish represented in our reference database.  New species can be easily added to the reference database if specimens are available. The FASTSHARK-ID library is being built to identify approximately 150 species of sharks on the CITES list of endangered species.
