How MALDI-ToF is Changing Clinical Microbiology - ICAAC 2013














Lasers are the new DNA. It is called matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization–time of flight (MALDI-TOF) and it uses mass spectrometry to quickly test for hundreds of different pathogens in a small sample using a single automated device. MALDI-TOF is increasingly being used in clinical microbiology laboratories for rapid bacterial and fungal identification. ASM Live at ICAAC participants discuss this new technology and how implementation can drastically change clinical care of some infections.
