OBJECTIVES:A rapid test to diagnose Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) on hospital wards could minimize common but critical diagnostic delay. Field asymmetric ion mobility spectrometry (FAIMS) is a portable mass spectrometry instrument that quickly analyses the chemical composition of gaseous mixtures (e.g., above a stool sample). Can FAIMS accurately distinguish C. difficile-positive from -negative stool samples?METHODS:We analyzed 213 stool samples with FAIMS, of which 71 were C. difficile… Expand
