Microbial Identification Using MALDI-TOF

The MALDI-TOF testing process yields a unique protein spectral fingerprint that is then compared to the Accugenix® validated database for bacterial and yeast identification. The AccuPRO-ID® solution provides higher accuracy rates and faster results, and is a less expensive option for routine monitoring programs.
