Maldi-Tof petriBiovet has just acquired a “Maldi Biotyper Smart System”, a bacterial identification machine using the MALDI TOF MS technology. This device enables extremely fast and accurate identification of bacterial isolates. This is particularly useful for bacterial species that are difficult or impossible to identify with traditional methods.

Our pickup service guarantees fast and safe transportation of your samples to our laboratories. Moreover, as these are operational 6 days out of 7, 18 hours out of 24, your samples are processed as soon as we receive them.

From now on, thanks to our new Maldi Tof equipment, test results (with precise identification) will be e-mailed to you 24 to 48 hours after receipt of the samples and they will also be accessible via the Internet using our Bionet system.

Note that this improved service, even faster and more precise, will be offered at no additional cost.

No doubt this will allow you to ensure even better control of bacterial infections.

For further information, feel free to contact us.
