World premiere: MicroVal validates four confirmation methods

MicroVal is the first validation platform to approve the issue of certificates according to ISO 16140-6 for confirmation methods.

The Maldi Biotyper has been approved according to the new ISO 16140-part 6 standard. Four certificates have been issued, based on the results of parallel validation studies for four different target organisms (Cronobacter spp, Samonella spp, Campylobacter and Listeria spp. & Listeria Monocytogenes). In parallel, the Maldi-Tof solution was approved according to AOAC-OMA by AOAC International. During the AOAC annual meeting in Toronto the MALDI Biotyper was awarded Method of the Year.
