Rapid identification of bacteria from blood cultures enables early initiation of appropriate antibiotic treatment in patients with bloodstream infections (BSI). The objective of the present study was to evaluate the use of matrix-associated laser desorption ionization-time of flight (MALDI-TOF) MS after a short incubation on solid media for rapid identification of bacteria from positive blood culture bottles. MALDI-TOF MS was performed after 2.5 and 5.5 h plate incubation of samples from… CONTINUE READING
