Bruker Biotyper MALDI TOF Mass Spectrometer versus BD Phoenix Automated Microbiology System Identification of Gram-Negative Bacilli2

Slide 19

February 2012

The 440 isolates included 132 uncommon Gram negative bacilli. Mass spectrometry identified 85% of the uncommon organisms to the genus level and 56% to the species level. The BD Phoenix system identified 52% of the uncommon organisms to the genus level and 34% to the species level. Mass spectrometry outperformed the BD Phoenix for identification of the uncommon Gram-negative bacilli.
