Identification and confirmation of microbial isolates is crucial in the analysis workflow, providing decision-makers the information required to release or hold products. Despite the difficulties in establishing a coherent definition for bacterial species and the long time-to-results, phenotypic and biochemical tests are still widely used and recognized. MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry has significantly changed the identification procedure and has to be extensively validated following AOAC and ISO 16140-6 guidelines. The Bruker MALDI Biotyper® is now regarded as a reliable and accurate alternative to quickly identify or routinely confirm systematic perspectives. Contract laboratories are beginning to adopt the Bruker MALDI Biotyper® as an efficient and effective alternative for identification and confirmation analysis in a routine laboratory setting.
 
Learning Objectives
  • Understand the perspective of contract laboratories and their role in routine testing, identification and confirmation of microorganisms.
  • Describe the process for validation of the MALDI-TOF and why this is necessary.
  • Explain how MALDI-TOF technology can improve the characterization and confirmation of microbiology isolates.
  • List the advantages of the Bruker MALDI Biotyper over the traditional identification methods such as biochemicals and molecular.
