Clinical Microbiology

The MBT IVD reference library comprises spectra from thousands of strains for, currently, 2,380 species including the common clinical species and also rare microorganisms. The library is continuously updated according to strict quality controlled procedures.

Bruker introduced the MALDI Biotyper solution in 2007 for clinical microbiology and since then it has quickly become established as the method of choice for routine clinical microbiology laboratories. The MALDI Biotyper is an automated next generation microbial identification system based on MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry.

It allows an unbiased identification of microorganisms within a few minutes down to the species level. The MALDI Biotyper is an easy, rapid, robust, high-throughput, cost-effective and efficient identification technology. Continued expansion of the library ensures that all clinically relevant microorganisms as well as more challenging organisms are included.
