The MALDI-8020 mass spectrometer is said to mark the company's return to benchtop matrix assisted laser desorption ionization time
of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS).
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted 510(k) de novo clearance to the first matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time
of flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometer for clinical use in the identification of disease-causing bacteria and yeast.
Newer techniques like real time PCR, matrix assisted laser desorption ionization time
of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF) and multiplex tandem PCR are now being evaluated and employed for the rapid identification of yeast species.
Protein and polymer analyses up to m/ z 100,000 by laser ionization time
of flight mass spectrometry.
It is the general consensus among microbiology and infectious disease specialists that molecular detection technology, whether protein-based assays such as electrospray mass spectrometry (ESI-MS), MALDI-TOF (matrix assisted laser desorption ionization time
of flight), or DNA-based technologies, is the future of microbiology.
PHOTONIS USA's High Mass BiPolar Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time
of Flight (MALDI-TOF) detector improves the detection efficiency of very high mass ions with significantly less complexity when compared to other high-mass MALDI-TOF detection solutions.
A miniaturized matrix-assisted laser desorption/ ionization time
of flight mass spectrometer with mass-correlated acceleration focusing.
The AGC calculates the allowed ionization time
to produce the Target number for each scan from the number of ions collected during a fixed 100us ionization time
Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time
of flight (MALDI-TOF) or DNA sequencing are required to make the diagnosis.
The Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time
of Flight Mass Spectrometer (MALDI-TOF-MS) was named by the Cleveland Clinic as one of the "Top Ten Breakthrough Medical Technologies of 2013." While MALDI-TOF mass spec will not change the microbiology lab overnight, it will have a dramatic impact on turnaround times (TATs) and clinical decision making.
Identification of anaerobic bacteria by Bruker Biotyper matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time
of flight mass spectrometry with on-plate formic acid preparation.
Early this year, we began to evaluate a technology called Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time
of Flight Mass Spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS), which holds the potential to help bypass some of the most time-consuming chores involved in pathogen culturing: identification and susceptibility testing.
