Tests

VITEK® MS identifies the vast majority of microorganisms that contaminate production areas and finished products in a minimum amount of time. We can even customize your database to track facility-specific strains. Using mass spectrometry, VITEK® MS is backed by our many years of microbiology expertise. With MALDI-TOF (Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Flight) technology, it provides clear and accurate identification at the species, genus, or group level in minutes.

  • Yeast
  • Myoplasma spp
  • Brucella spp
  • Listeria spp
  • Cronobacter spp

Quality Built Knowledge Base

The decisions microbiologists make everyday impact the quality of the product manufactured. It’s important to have the most accurate identification results possible so that those decisions are based on sound data. Our VITEK® knowledge base is built with multiple strains for each organism we claim to include intra-species diversity and ensure a highly confident ID.

Geography, testing and growth conditions can all impact an organism's protein makeup. That's why we incorporate theses variables into our knowledges base, so you can confidently and accurately identify organisms.
