Intact cell mass spectrometry (ICMS) rapidly analyses the surface composition of microorganisms providing rapid, discriminatory fingerprints for identification and subtyping of important nosocomial pathogens such as methicillin resistant Staphylocccus aureus (MRSA). In this study, ICMS using matrix-assisted laser desorption ionisation time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI TOF/MS) was assessed for the identification and subtyping of MRSA. An intra- and inter-laboratory reproducibility study… CONTINUE READING
