Accelerated drying with MBT FAST Shuttle

MBT FAST Shuttle

More than a decade ago, the MALDI Biotyper® revolutionized microbiology and convinced many microbiologists because of its fast and accurate results.

However - fast is never fast enough – and all solutions to speed up the process are helpful to decrease the time-to-result.

Preparing samples for MALDI-TOF analysis inevitably requires a little bit of patience while the matrix is drying and crystallizing. The time needed for the crucial matrix crystallization process can be reduced by at least 50% by the MBT FAST Shuttle. This small benchtop device offers the ideal environment for optimized, standardized and therefore reproducible matrix crystallization and other droplet assays, such as MBT STAR®-BL assays and mycobacteria sample preparation.

Automated matrix and formic acid deposition with MBT Galaxy®

No more hassling with pipette tips, no more contamination concerns. Our system offers precise and contactless droplet dispensing of formic acid and HCCA matrix, reducing waste and eliminating carry-over risks. The MBT Galaxy® seamlessly integrates with the MALDI Biotyper® system and ensures every sample is correctly prepared, all while reducing the environmental burden.

Seamless project setup is just a scan away. Our automated onboard barcode reader instantly links the MALDI target plate’s barcode with the worklist, enhancing workflow traceability and efficiency.

After droplet deposition, controlled humidity conditions provide the ideal environment for optimized matrix crystallization, while preventing solvent evaporation into the lab.

Safeguard your lab space. Minimal footprint, maximum functionality.
