Bruker Daltonics will be present at booth #27 in the exhibit hall to provide information about their revolutionary MALDI TOF for rapid microbial identification. Stop by to see the system in action and to hear about their latest study results and other news.

MALDI Biotyper Technology

To help answer key challenges in Clinical and Pharmaceutical Microbiology, Bruker has utilized its many years of experience in MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry to create the truly ground breaking MALDI Biotyper system, based on its market-leading MALDI-TOF mass spectrometers. With its combination of performance and utility, the MALDI Biotyper has changed the way microbial identification is done in laboratories around the world.

Identifying Microorganisms by their Molecular Fingerprint

The MALDI Biotyper identifies microorganisms using MALDI-TOF (Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight) Mass Spectrometry to measure a unique molecular fingerprint of an organism. Specifically, the MALDI Biotyper measures highly abundant proteins that are found in all microorganisms. The characteristic patterns of these highly abundant proteins are used to reliably and accurately identify a particular microorganism by matching the respective pattern with an extensive open database to determine the identity of the microorganism down to the species level.
