Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time of flight (MALDI TOF) mass spectrometry offers a safe, cost-effective, and adaptable system for rapid identification of bacteria and fungi. Recent studies have shown that MALDI TOF may outperform conventional identification assays. This presentation provides an explanation of this technology and our experience using it in the clinical laboratory.
