The MALDI Biotyper workflow has been designed to be as robust and easy
to perform as possible. No previous experience with Mass Spectrometry
is required. The workflow has been streamlined and requires only a few
simple steps to generate high quality species identifications, our dedicated
microbiology software automates the process of acquiring the mass spectrum
and performing the library matching providing a report showing the closest
matches to the extensive library of microorganisms.
Typically no more than a single colony from a plate or a small aliquot from a broth is required, the entire procedure requires only a few minutes to complete.
Additional workflows are also available for the processing of positive blood cultures as well as other traditionally difficult to analyze groups of organisms including fungi and mycobacterium.
