Escherichia coli classification into phylogroups reflects the diversity of their pathogenicity and their ecological niche, B2 isolates being the most virulent among extra-intestinal strains. MALDI-TOF MS allows a quick, automated, simple and inexpensive bacterial identification. We evaluated the MALDI-TOF MS as a tool for E. coli phylogroup differentiation. We used 656 E. coli isolates, previously assigned to phylogroup A, B1, B2, and D by multiplex PCR, to constitute independent training and… Expand
