Comparison of matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (maldi-tof ms) with conventional culture and biochemical method of bacteria identification to species level

Identification of bacteria to species level is based on culturing in different media which takes 48 to 72 h from the time of isolation. Matrix-assisted desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) is a new technology in bacteria identification. We evaluated MALDI-TOF-MS system with 101 consecutively isolated bacteria colonies under routine laboratory conditions by comparing its identification...
