"The major benefit of MALDI-ToF is that it allows our customers to take action on positive results and start rectifying issues before other labs have even confirmed the problem exists.

"By showing the species of bacteria, we are also helping customers discover secondary contamination issues. Where traditional techniques report Pseudomonas species, we can identify the exact strain on each sample received."

ADEY employ more than 100 staff from their head office on Gloucester Road in Cheltenham.
