February 2012

Welcome to Mayo Medical Laboratories' Hot Topics. These presentations provide short discussions of current topics and may be helpful to you in your practice.

Our presenter for this program is Dr. Robin Patel, Chair of the Clinical Microbiology Division in the Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Dr. Patel discusses how matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time of flight (MALDI TOF) mass spectrometry works for bacterial identification and Mayo Clinic’s experience with the technology in the clinical laboratory. Thank you, Dr. Patel.

Thank you, Sharon, for that introduction.
