The MALDI Biotyper has obtained the IVD-CE Tag.

We anticipate continuing to work with ARUP on further applications of the MALDI Biotyper. .. ARUP Laboratories installs Bruker MALDI Biotyper system for rapid microbial identification Bruker Daltonics today announced that ARUP Laboratories has selected and installed the Bruker MALDI Biotyper program as their next-generation rapid microbial identification program. The MALDI Biotyper has obtained the IVD-CE Tag, and is currently for Research ONLY USE outside of the European Union. We look forward to continuing to utilize ARUP on further applications of the MALDI Biotyper. Its carefully curated data source includes quality-controlled entries of over 3,700 strains from about 2,000 well-characterized microbial species.The bladder cancer test uses a technology known as microsatellite DNA analysis . Microsatellites, referred to as brief tandem repeats also, are repeating units of 1 to six nucleotides found throughout individual chromosomes. These repeating regions are mutated in tumors often, either through deletions or by an expansion of the number of repeats. For screening for recurrent bladder tumor, DNA could be extracted from cells that are usually within urine easily, and compared to DNA sequences of unaffected cells, such as for example lymphocytes, from the same patients.
