Pataign BACLIB Rapid Lipid Extraction Kit

Pataign has introduced the research-use-only BACLIB Rapid Lipid Extraction Kit for microbial identification and colistin resistance detection, compatible with Bruker MALDI mass spectrometers. The kit can be used to identify bacterial species in about 30 minutes with a single assay involving less than a minute of hands-on time per sample, with no centrifugation or complex handling steps. The kit also identifies and determines colistin resistance for all the ESKAPE pathogens and includes access to custom software for ID/resistance determination.
