Application Note: Changing pharmaceutical microbiology: MALDI Biotyper
20 February 2024

In this product brochure, Bruker introduces the MALDI Biotyper®, a microbial identification system based on MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, allowing unbiased identification of microorganisms within a few minutes down to the species level. The system identifies microorganisms based on their molecular fingerprint, utilizing MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry to determine each organism's unique fingerprint from colony material. This characteristic spectrum pattern enables reliable and accurate identification by matching against thousands of reference spectra from microorganism strains.
