Hardy Diagnostics Autof MS 1000 MALDI-TOF Instrument

Hardy Diagnostics, in collaboration with Autobio, has launched the Autof MS 1000 matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionized time of flight (MALDI-TOF) instrument. The Autof MS 1000 provides high-speed identification and taxonomical classification of bacteria, yeasts, and filamentous fungi based on proteomic fingerprinting, with a database of approximately 5,000 species of microorganisms. The instrument is currently for research use only and will be available in markets that do not require US Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance, Hardy said.
