Recently, we conducted a fitness-for-use study with nearly 500 bacterial isolates spanning 104 unique genera representing 352 unique species with the aim to re-evaluate MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry (MS) score cutoffs for assigning species-level ID.

This webinar will review the results of our analysis. Specific topics will include:

  • Background of data interpretation criteria for microbial ID using MALDI
  • Optimization of MALDI score cutoffs for reporting species-level ID
  • Performance of MALDI for ID of yeasts
