VITEK MS is an automated mass spectrometry microbial identification system that uses Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-of-Flight (MALDI-TOF) technology.

VITEK MS contains a comprehensive comprehensive CE-marked  database for bacteria and fungi, including mycobacteria, Nocardia and molds—now including BrucellaCandida auris and Elizabethkingia anophelise microbial samples.

Efficiency and Time Savings:

  • Innovative clinical application with >1000 CE-IVD approved organism identification capability.
  • VITEK MS integration with VITEK 2 through Myla, allowing the connection of VITEK MS ID and VITEK 2 AST results.
  • Automated system for identification of aerobes, anaerobes, moulds, yeast and mycoplasma.
  • High sensitivity in the >10k Dalton range.
  • Ivd approved ready to use mycobacteria, nocardia, mould kits.
  • Microbial identification by obtaining spectra directly form intact bacteria thanks to the MALDI-TOF technology(matric assisted laser Desorption ionization time-of-flight)
  • Comprehensive database of clinically relevant species for the spectra analysis and the rapid identification of organisms.

Safety and traceability:

  • VITEK MS prep station: to link the specimen information to each spot on the target slide and to the VITEK 2 cassette position.
  • Disposable target slides: unique barcode (manual data entry minimized), IVD compliant, calibrate spots, no cleaning, low cost.
  • Dedicated positions on the target slides for calibration.

Easy To Use:

  • Clear structured presentation of the results in the Myla dashboard.
  • Disposable slides do not require cleaning or cleaning supplies.
  • Ready to use matrix (CHCA) and formic acid solutions


Up to 192 tests in one run (disposable four target slides with 48 positions each).

Seamless integration with Vitek & Bactalert/Virtuo Through Myla

  • Remote working capability
  • User friendly software facilitates the workflow from the sample preparation and loading to the specimen analysis.
