Mass Spectrometry Profiling of Beer Spoilage Microorganisms – A Cost Calculation

Attractive alternative | Mass spectrometry profiling is an emerging technology for the identification of spoilage microorganisms in breweries, enabling high throughput identifications to the species level without the need for specialist personnel. Here we provide a detailed cost analysis, which demonstrates a significantly lower per-sample running cost as compared to polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This renders mass spectrometry profiling as an attractive alternative for microbial identification in breweries.
