MALDI target plates coated with TiO2
Photo-reactive target plates can be used with the BacteriaMS, an online database analysis for bacteria identification, developed by our collaboration partner Dr. Liang Qiao's MS group, Fudan University.
BacteriaMS offers a free online service for bacteria identification by MALDI-TOF-MS. Currently, the database includes mass spectra of more than 400 strains of bacteria. The identification is realized by pattern matching between the user uploaded mass spectra and verified database entries.
