MALDIID is specialised in micro-organism identification ranging from bacteria, yeast, fungi to insects. We apply innovative mass spectrometry to identify these micro-organisms by comparing fingerprints with our reference database. We have specialised modules:

  • RHIZO-ID focuses on identifying rhizobia in legume root nodules. Rhizobia performance is directly linked to the amount of fixed nitrogen which is in turn important for yield. This service helps farmers to understand the success of their inoculation.
    • BACTO-ID focuses on identification of disease-causing bacteria in Aquaculture where time is crucian to prevent mortalities.
    • INSECT-ID focuses currently on mosquito, aphid, sandfly and tick. We can identify the species using eggs, larvae and adults and are keen to expand to other important insects for agriculture and biosecurity.
