The sample tray of the MALDI-TOF can hold 96 samples that can be transferred by a toothpick rather than older devices which needed much larger samples. Kara Robbins is validating Moraxella bacteria as part of her undergrad research project. She is using a new device called a MALDI-TOF. Iit uses a laser to vaporize pathogens into ions that can be identified through mass spectrometry.
