Our lab director was quick to acquire MALDI-TOF
MS because we were eager to adopt technology that would reduce the turnaround-time of our results.
The aim of this study was to compare the performance of MALDI-TOF
MS with subspecies-specific PCR method for the identification of Francisella species from Turkey.
is primarily used to identify colonies growing on agar media.
Advances in information technology/computer science and development of well-validated comprehensive databases of mass spectra representing diverse types of bacteria and fungi ultimately enabled automation of MALDI-TOF
MS and associated data analysis, delivering a tool for the clinical microbiology laboratory.
The company introduced a MALDI Biotyper system in 2009, in compliance with the European IVD directive EC/98/79, which made the CE-IVD labelled IVD-MALDI Biotyper the first MALDI-TOF
based product registered for use in European clinical microbiology labs.
A metodologia usada para recuperacao de bacterias causadoras de mastite no leite para identificacao por MALDI-TOF
MS sem necessidade de cultivo microbiologico foi baseada no metodo de identificacao de bacterias em amostras de sangue (MOUSSAOUI et al.
will be evaluated for accuracy, reproducibility, and ease of use.
MS is amenable to tissue imaging applications because it is a straightforward process.
After separation, MALDI-TOF
mass spectrometry was used to identify the exact chemical composition of the end groups, and to correlate molecular size with molecular mass.
BREMEN, Germany -- Bruker today announces an exclusive licensing agreement with Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, The Netherlands for rapid testing of beta-lactamase activity using MALDI-TOF
Automated blood culturing, antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST), and MALDI-TOF
systems lead to more accurate and faster results, with less wasted materials and tech time.
A novel method that allows the rapid and reliable identification of most pathogenic bacteria is MALDI-TOF
mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF
MS), originally established for cultured bacteria (11, 12).
