MALDI TOF Mass Spectrometry: Strengths

Slide 27

February 2012

In summary, matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry is automated, green, doesn't require specific expertise in mass spectrometry, and has a rapid turnaround time and high throughput capability. It only requires a single colony and is associated with a low exposure risk due to sample inactivation. Although not covered in today's presentation, this approach is cost effective and has demonstrated high interlaboratory reproducibility. It has broad applicability (covering all types bacteria including anaerobes, and fungi). The system is open and adaptable by the user.
