Microbiology QC made easy
The MALDI Biotyper is a Rapid Microbiological Method for microorganism identification based on proteomic fingerprints. Its workflow has been designed to be as robust and easy to perform as possible. Only a few simple steps are required to generate high-quality, reliable microorganism identification within minutes after a positive culture is detected. These time savings can be directly translated into significant cost savings in terms of lost product shipments and production line uptime.
Broad coverage of relevant microorganisms
The MBT Compass reference library currently comprises 7,311 reference spectra of 2,509 species from 433 bacteria and fungi genera, including microorganisms important for food and beverage safety QC. Not only organisms such as the more common pathogens like Listeria, Campylobacter or Salmonella sp. as well as species such as fermentation strains e.g. Lactobacillus and Propionibacterium, but also Clostridia and Chronobacter, important for dairy industry, or spoilage organisms such as Alicyclobacillus and heat-resistant molds for beverage producers, and Legionella for water supply companies can be easily detected.
