BioVendor Instruments MALDI Colonyst
Jul 13, 2016
BioVendor Instruments has released the latest generation of MALDI Colonyst, an intelligent robot for colony picking and complete MALDI target preparation. MALDI Colonyst fully automates the laborious and error-prone process of sample preparation for microbial identification using MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, either with Bruker's MALDI Biotyper or BioMérieux's VITEK-MS. In addition, by using a newly developed, patent-pending process called wet deposition, the platform has shown a 10 to 15 percent improvement in MALDI identification scores for more difficult microbes, the company claimed.
