MALDI-TOF-MS: today’s fastest and most accurate identification method

MALDI-TOF-MS is a matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectronomy. Until recently, microbial identification relied on conventional phenotypic and gene sequencing techniques. MALDI-TOF-MS development has revolutionized routine identification in microbiology by introducing a prompt, low-cost, and efficient identification technique. 

Identification and analysis of microorganisms have long been an integral part of our laboratory services. As such, IDEXX BioAnalytics has an extensive MALDI-TOF database for identifying microbiological agents, resulting in a more comprehensive analysis than ever before.
