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 [...]
