Elevating differentiation in microorganism identification

Bruker's MALDI Biotyper® has redefined microorganism identification, and the MBT HT Subtyping Module takes this legacy even further. While our MALDI Biotyper® excels in identifying diverse species, certain genera pose challenges in differentiation. The MBT HT Subtyping Module automates the detection of specific marker peaks, instilling newfound confidence in microbial identification.

Our team engineered the MBT HT Subtyping Module to surmount these challenges, automating the differentiation of complex cases such as Mycobacterium chimaera from Mycobacterium intracellulare, and species confirmation of Streptococcus pneumoniaeS. mitis_oralis and S. pseudopneumoniae.

Empowering detection of resistance markers

The need for precise microorganism differentiation resonates across industries, from healthcare to food production, as we combat antibiotic resistance and track infectious outbreaks. Implement the MBT HT Subtyping Module, designed to swiftly pinpoint resistance markers tailored to these crucial applications.

As antibiotic-resistant bacteria surge, effective prevention and control are paramount. The potential of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry to identify specific resistance markers is harnessed through the MBT HT Subtyping Module, sounding a warning bell for potential resistance. In a single automated workflow, it seamlessly merges pathogen identification with the automated detection of resistance markers, offering early warnings for blaKPC expressing Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli, and Bacteroides fragilis cfiA positive strains.
