The MALDI Biotyper® is acknowledged across the world as the state-of-the-art system solution for the identification of microorganisms.
The IVD MALDI Biotyper® system solution based on the microflex® LT/SH MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer has, over the last decade, revolutionized the routine identification of microorganisms.
The microflex® LT/SH is a compact linear mode only benchtop MALDI-TOF system designed as an easy-to-use, but high performance solution for microbiology laboratories.
This affordable, high value benchtop MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer with 60 Hz nitrogen laser is designed for microbiology. The instrument benefits from its gridless, self-cleaning ion source, providing excellent sensitivity in positive ion mode. Operating under the dedicated IVD-CE MALDI Biotyper® software platform for intuitive operation, especially by non-expert users and in multi-instrument laboratories, the microflex® LT/SH is a robust and easy-to-use system for routine microbial identification.
The microflex® LT/SH features the patented PAN™ technology for high mass resolution over a broad mass range, within a compact device. Designed as a benchtop solution, it can be easily integrated into every laboratory.
The self-cleaning ion source permits continuous high performance with minimized maintenance requirements. The push-button IR-laser cleaning is easy to perform and takes just 15 minutes. Intervals for planned maintenances are therefore longer and downtime periods shorter.
As many countries across the world are challenged with a rising number of multi-drug resistant organisms, there’s a high need for rapid and accurate detection of antimicrobial resistance. MALDI-TOF technology is recognized as a reliable, reproducible method to rapidly identify bacteria from positive blood cultures, and can detect subsequently beta-lactamase activity in bacterial strains in one workflow.

The MALDI Biotyper® IVD System supports these additional workflow requirements with ready-to-go IVD-labeled kits such as the MBT Sepsityper® IVD Kit , the MBT STAR®-Carba IVD Kit and the MBT STAR®-Cepha IVD Kit.
