Bacterial Identification by MALDI TOF Mass Spectrometry1

Slide 15

February 2012

Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time of flight mass spectrometry was initially evaluated for single organisms or organism groups, but more recently has been shown to apply to all types of bacteria and even fungi. The majority of studies have been from outside of the United States, particularly from Europe, where matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time of flight mass spectrometry is already in widespread use in clinical microbiology laboratories.
