Bruker Daltonics has announced an exclusive distribution agreement with Francisco Soria Melguizo at the 19th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Disease. Francisco Soria Melguizo will distribute Bruker Daltonics' matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) Biotyper to laboratories in clinical microbiology and veterinary medicine in Spain.

Rafael Rumin, general manager at Francisco Soria Melguizo, said "The MALDI Biotyper is an amazing new molecular approach for microbial identification. We are especially convinced of this system due its broad success during the market introduction phase in Germany. The Spanish microbiology market clearly recognizes the need for a new technology. The MALDI Biotyper enables next generation microbial identification for the 21st century."

MALDI Biotyper solution is reported to enable identification, taxonomical classification or dereplication of microorganisms such as bacteria, yeasts and fungi. Classification and identification of microorganisms is achieved using high-throughput MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. Applications include clinical routine microbial identification (in EU only), environmental and pharmaceutical analysis, taxonomical research, food and consumer product processing and quality control, as well as use in marine microbiology.
