In the event of food poisoning, identification of the causative factor is extremely important in determining the path of infection, prescribing treatment and preventing recurrence. Shimadzu’s iDPlus microorganism identification platform provides rapid identification of microorganisms in food.

Identification of Bacteria (MALDI-TOF-MS)

Comparing mass spectra of different bacteria In order to prevent pathogenic germs from contaminating food sources, it is essential to identify them quickly and reliably in order to allow for proper controlled measures. A microorganism identification system using the AXIMA MALDI-TOF MS enables direct measurement of cultured microorganisms and identification within two minutes.
