MALDI Biotyper

"We use the system for bacterial identification. It is robust, rapid, and discriminatory for a majority of our clinical isolates and very useful in our lab."

Review date: 01 Aug 2014

Application Area: microbiology
MALDI Biotyper

"This easy to use mass-spectrometric device enables a fast and efficient typing of bacteria, fungi and mammalian cells. The workflow to bring e.g., bacterial cells onto a sample plate is greatly streamlined and the subsequent mass recording and typing on the Microflex apparatus from Bruker is ideal, even for non-MS trained persons. I would call it from plate to plate (agar plate to MALDI steel plate). Have fun with it!"

Application Area: Microbiology
MALDI Biotyper

"It’s the best automatic identification instrument that we have ever purchased. It is reliable, easy to use and requires no maintenance. You only have to purchase one reagent and one control from the company. Also there are no expensive proprietary consumables required. "

Review date: 12 Nov 2013

Application Area: Identification of Bacteria (Maldi -TOF)
MALDI Biotyper

"This product is excellent at giving results to clinicians quickly that saves a lot of time compared to doing a Gram stains, API’s etc. It would have been useful to know about similar products before the purchase. The few areas the lab is having difficulty with is the database of organisms, it is quite vast but there are still some organisms which are not validated. Also some organisms are crossed match e.g. S.oralis and S.pneumoniae."

Application Area: Rapid ID of bacteria
MALDI Biotyper

"This system is very time efficient. I think it is changing the face of the microbiology lab. Rapid ID can help doctors begin treatment with sensitivities pending."

Description

 

The MALDI Biotyper identifies microorganisms using MALDI-TOF (Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight) Mass Spectrometry to measure a unique molecular fingerprint of an organism. Specifically, the MALDI Biotyper measures highly abundant proteins that are found in all microorganisms.

The characteristic patterns of these highly abundant proteins are used to reliably and accurately identify a particular microorganism by matching the respective pattern with an extensive open database to determine the identity of the microorganism down to the species level.

Features:

  • Highly Accurate
  • Applicable to a Wide Range of Microorganisms
  • Much Faster than Traditional Methods
  • Cost Effective
  • Robust and Easy to Use
