Axcess™ System

The Axcess™ System features the precision of the Bruker MALDI Biotyper instrument with the industry-leading Accugenix® proprietary microbial libraries through a secure online network. Based on MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, the MALDI Biotyper is a paradigm shift and has become widely accepted across industry segments as the next generation of microbial identification. While conventional biochemical identification takes time-consuming incubation and ancillary precursory tests after selecting the microbes from the culture plate, the Axcess™ System allows for instantaneous identification of isolated colonies from a plate.

Axcess™ System Features

  • Bruker MALDI Biotyper: Automated self-cleaning, silent bench-top system with enhanced peak resolution, sensitivity and performance.
  • Annual Axcess™ Subscription: The subscription is based on the number of classifications obtained from the Accugenix® bacterial database.
  • Accugenix® MALDI-TOF Reference Library: The largest curated database focused on identification of bacteria found in aseptic and non-sterile manufacturing environments.
  • No-Match Sample Guarantee: Complimentary AccuPRO-ID® service to test samples that fail to yield a successful species identification.
  • Real-Time Library Updates: Our Gold Service Package includes prioritizing the development and validation of missing MALDI-TOF data entries in real time.
  • Fungal Samples: Axcess™ customers receive a discounted rate for the identification of fungi and yeast samples utilizing our AccuGENX-ID® FunITS service.
  • Security: Our IT approach is purposely designed with multiple redundancies to protect your data and to ensure continuity of service 24/7.
  • Tracking and Trending through Our Customer Web Portal: The Accugenix® Customer Web Portal makes it easy to get a glimpse of your environmental control data, past and present. Filterable reports help you note significant changes in microbial flora when investigating excursions or conducting root cause determinations.
  • System Throughput: Workflow analysis has shown that 4 target plates containing 48 spots each can yield results in 60 minutes (15 minutes/target plate), compared to competitive MALDI-TOF systems that can take up to 180 minutes for the same workload or phenotypic systems that can take up to 18 hours of incubation time for biochemical reactions to occur.
