The MALDI Biotyper® system (MBT) provides specific and reliable identification of microorganisms within minutes. It’s recent validation and certification according to the Official Method of Analysis program (OMA) of the AOAC International and according to the new ISO/DIS 16140-part 6 standard, offers now a reliable "one system - one workflow" solution for food microbiology, in terms of safety and quality.
The MBT has been validated as a complete food microbiology solution for confirmation of:
in accordance with ISO/DIS 16140-6:2017 and the MicroVal Rules and Certification Scheme version 8. The certificates are available on .
The MBT has been certified according to the Official Method of Analysis program (OMA) of the AOAC International, for confirmation and identification of:
The OMA 2017.09 and 2017.10 protocols are available on .
The MALDI Biotyper is a Rapid Microbiological Method for microorganism identification based on proteomic fingerprints, useful in food microbiology. Its workflow has been designed to be as robust and easy to perform as possible. Only a few simple steps are required to generate a high-quality, reliable microorganism confirmation/identification - within minutes after detection of a positive selective culture, and without a time-consuming purification step. These time savings can be directly translated into significant cost savings in terms of lost product shipments and production line uptime.
The annually updated MBT Compass® reference library currently comprises 7,854 reference spectra of 2,748 species from 471 bacteria and fungi genera, including microorganisms important for food and beverage safety and quality controls. A dedicated is available as well, expanding the identification capabilities to 152 species / species groups. The reference libraries are not only a reliable source for confirmation of food pathogens or quality indicators such as Salmonella spp., Listeria spp., L. monocytogenes, Campylobacter spp., or Cronobacter spp.; but also allow the quality control of starter cultures and other fermentation, ripening/maturation strains, and the identification of microbial spoilers such as species of Pseudomonadales, Enterobacteriaceae, spore forming bacteria, yeasts and molds.
Quality control laboratories that want to create their own library entries can make use of the optional MBT Explorer® Software to compile customized in-house libraries dedicated to food microbiology. These might be libraries with site-specific contaminants and / or important species used for production such as probiotic cultures, lactic and acetic acid bacteria, fermentative yeast and ripening molds. Customer-generated libraries can easily be exchanged, e.g. between laboratories in other plants of the same company.
After a first identification to the genus or species level, the screens some characteristic peaks to improve the discrimination level. This deeper screening is automatically triggered after identification, no additional work is required.
The MBT Subtyping Module is very useful for several applications in food safety and food quality, such as for fast confirmation of L. monocytogenes. This is now as easy as it can be, due to implementation of the MBT Subtyping Module into the MALDI Biotyper workflow for food safety.
Also for the characterization of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in livestock and raw milk, the MBT Subtyping Module is useful, by carrying the surface peptide PSM-mec.
Not only pathogen confirmation benefits from the easy MALDI Biotyper workflow. The same set of low cost consumables, the same system, the same software, the same workflow can be used for fast and easy microorganism identification, be it bacteria, yeasts or molds.
