AXIMA@SARAMIS is the easy to use Microbial Identification
System revolutionizing daily routine in analytical
and diagnostic laboratories. Cultured microorganisms
can be directly applied to the MALDI sample target and
introduced to an AXIMA series MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer.
Outstanding recovery rate, fast achieved
Within one minute, AXIMA@SARAMIS identifies grampositive
and gram-negative bacteria, yeast, fungi and
spores based on their characteristic MALDI-TOF MS
fingerprints with up to 98 % recovery rate down to
sub-species level. No preselection of analytical methods
is required, hands-on time is reduced and costs are cut
Wide range of Applications
AXIMA@SARAMIS covers a wide range of applications.
Various industries benefit from this new analytical
approach, such as diagnostics, pharmaceutical industry,
healthcare and food industry.
It offers rapid and reliable diagnosis of human and
veterinarian infectious pathogens. Results can be
transferred automatically to any LIMS*.
In the drug discovery process AXIMA@SARAMIS
recognizes new isolates generated by microorganisms and
classifies the unknown into a taxonomic tree.
For use in culture collections AXIMA@SARAMIS
identifies and classifies strains based on phenotype
AXIMA@SARAMIS is used in manufacturing processes of
food and beverages to provide high quality and to recognize
upcoming toxic microorganisms at an early stage.
With the AXIMA models Shimadzu offers AXIMA-Assurance,
AXIMA-Confidence and AXIMA-Performance.
The right instrument for different applications needing reliability,
reproducibility and sensitivity
