Hof from the Mycology Laboratory of Laboratory of Limbach in Heidelberg, Germany pointed out: "The identification of multicellular fungi to the species level is one of the most challenging tasks of many microbiological laboratories in medicine, hygiene as well as in the food industry.
Moreover, the Institute for Medical Microbiology participates in Brukeros efforts in establishing an international group of experts working on the identification of multicellular fungi with the MALDI Biotyper approach.
Now the MALDI Biotyper can also provide for reliable identification of these last 5%, including for example multicellular fungi.
