Microbial Identification - a rapidmicrobiology Special Focus


Microbial identification has for years been based on phenotypic biochemical tests, but the advent of new techniques particularly MALDI-TOF has revolutionized the ID workflow in many routine labs, providing a faster, more accurate identification with reduced biohazard waste and all at a low cost per test.

Browse through the rapidmicrobiology special focus on identification, which includes contributions from contract service providers, proficiency testing programmes, there's input on how a water lab prepared their validation and cost case for a MALDI-TOF platform, plus summaries of recent identification workshops at Pharmig annual conference and a day of MALDI-TOF in London, plus take our quiz - are you a MALDI expert?
