VITEK® MS - Accurate Identification of Environmental Bacteria by MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry (PDA - 2019)
Used in contamination investigations and to understand the microbial ecology of a manufacturing facility, accurate microbial identification (ID) is an essential part of pharmaceutical quality control testing. In this study we demonstrate the accuracy of bioMérieux’s latest VITEK® MS knowledge base (KB) which uses Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization – Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry (MALDI-TOF) for ID of microorganisms in pharmaceutical environments.
Data presented in this poster utilizes the latest VITEK® MS KB v3.2 that was built with multiple well characterized environmental strains, tested using various media and incubation times and coming from different regions of the world. In this study, we [...]
