MALDIID Pty Ltd on social media

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. They are crucial in the amount of nitrogen fixed which is directly linked to yields. This service helps farmers to understand the success of inoculation.
  • BACTO-ID focuses on identification of a large range of bacteria in the environment.
  • SPECTRA-ID focuses on laboratories that already use this technology but where the database is limited.
  • INSECT-ID focuses currently on mosquito, aphid, sandfly and tick. We can identify the species using each life stage and are keen to expand to other important insects for agriculture or biosecurity.
