Scientists at a local laboratory say a new piece of technology there can identify bacteria a day earlier than traditional methods.

"If it's a blood infection or meningitis, getting that identification as fast as we can can mean the difference between life and death," said Karen Calvert, a microbiologist who works in research and development at PCL Alverno.

The sooner scientists identify what is causing an infection, the sooner a physician can prescribe the appropriate antibiotic to fight it.

About a month ago, technicians at PCL Alverno began using the Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization - Time of Flight, called MALDI-TOF.
