Figure 3

Representative MALDI-TOF-MS spectra of the Brucella strains used as references in the generated Brucella reference library in the range of 1, 000 to 12, 000 Da. The relative intensity (R.i) is shown as a percentage of the total intensity on the y-axis, and the mass to charge ratio (M/Z) is shown on the x-axis. A) B. melitensis Ether. B) B. melitensis 16 M.
