Since the early 1980s, mass spectrometry has emerged as a particularly powerful tool for analysis and characterization of proteins in research. Recently, bacteriologists have focused their attention on the use of mass spectrometry (MS) for bacterial identification, especially Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization Time-Of-Flight (MALDI-TOF). Moreover, recent publications have evaluated MALDI-TOF in microbiology laboratory for routine use. MALDI-TOF-MS is a rapid, precise, and cost… CONTINUE READING
