The analytical efficiency of the MALDI Biotyper when used in combination with the fungi library is certainly a significant technological breakthrough and practical improvement when compared to more conventional approaches and technologies using sequencing and microscopy methods only. .. Bruker announces new protocols and reference libraries for mycobacteria, multicellular fungi At the 22nd ECCMID in London, Bruker announces new reference and protocols libraries for mycobacteria and multicellular fungi to help expand extend the microbial coverage of the MALDI Biotyper system for MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry-based microbial identification. Both sets of microorganisms pose major complications to private and general public healthcare systems. Nowadays, bacteria of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, for instance, are reported once again in countries again where they were thought to be eradicated. Continue reading
