All strains had MALDI-TOF
scores[greater than or equal to] 2.3, indicating reliable identification of the species.

The patient's neurologic status did not improve, and MALDI-TOF
MS results, available on day 35 (19 days after serum collection), confirmed botulinum toxin type A.
In our experience, the creation of new spectra enabled us to increment our MALDI-TOF
mass spectrometry database used for clinical microbiology, thus enabling recognition of bacterial species first isolated as a part of culturomics studies and improving the accuracy of diagnosis of infectious diseases involving bacteria.
The protocol was developed to evaluate the performance of faster species identification by MALDI-TOF
mass spectrometry using clinical samples combined with a multiplex real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) for genes correlated with antimicrobial resistance.
Sequencing of these genes has proven effective in discriminating related species to a level far superior to conventional or semi-automated biochemical analysis and is currently rivaled only by MALDI-TOF
Patients were excluded if they were not admitted to the ICU, were transferred from an outside hospital with an active bacteremia, the organisms had not been identified by MALDI-TOF
MS at the time of this study, the patient died before the index blood culture became positive and/or treatment was withdrawn.
auris can be accurately identified using MALDI-TOF
The Cleveland Clinic named MALDI-TOF
MS as one of the "Top Ten Breakthrough Medical Technologies of 2013.
Prior to the introduction of MALDI-TOF
MS (VITEK-MS, bioMeerieux, Marcy l'Etoile, France) in August 2012, preliminary identification of Aerococcus to the genus level was based on colony morphology, Gram stain morphology, and catalase reaction.
Definite identification was made with MALDI-TOF
