VITEK® MS Expanded V3.2 Database FDA 510(k) cleared

Expanded database for the identification of mycobacteria, Nocardia, and molds

Now including Brucella species, Candida auris, and Elizabethkingia anophelis

VITEK MS MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometry System for pathogen identification has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the expanded identification of mycobacteria, Nocardia and molds. The database update also includes important clinical pathogens such as Brucella species, Candida auris, and Elizabethkingia anophelis. The VITEK MS database includes more than 15,000 distinct strains to provide highly accurate identifications of these difficult to cultivate and difficult to identify organisms.

Reagent kits have been introduced; the VITEK MS Mycobacterium/Nocardia Kits1 and the VITEK MS Mold Kit.2 These reagent kits enable simple and safe inactivation and protein extraction of these organisms.

The Mycobacterium/Nocardia Kits are FDA 510(k) cleared for extraction from both solid and liquid medium. The Mold Kit is FDA 510(k) cleared for extraction from solid medium.

bioMérieux’s VITEK MS system offers simple and reliable identification of medically important pathogens, providing clinicians with actionable results to better manage serious infections.
