Find Out if You Are a MALDI-TOF Microbial ID Expert - Quiz
Many new instruments claim to be 'game-changers' but the MALDI-TOF based platforms for microbial identification using mass spectrometry really have revolutionized the identification process in clinical, food, pharma and water laboratories, being very quickly adopted from initial commercial offerings in 2009 to now being in widespread routine use in many different labs around the world. Implementation of MALDI-TOF as a first step identification system gives a fast, accurate, non-subjective result at a low cost per test plus there's a bonus of less biohazard waste when compared to biochemical based methods.
But how much do you know about this approach - are you the 'go-to' person in your lab - take our quiz and see!
