Antimicrobial resistance is rising, prompting clinical laboratories to find effective solutions for fast, accurate microorganism identification. MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry has emerged as a rapid, cost-efficient and clinically effective tool for identifying pathogens.(1,2) In this webinar, Dr. Elizabeth Palavecino shares her laboratory’s clinical experience with MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. This discussion explores the clinical effectiveness of this technology in patient management as well as the challenges of antimicrobial susceptibility reporting. P.A.C.E. credit is available for your participation.* Ideal For: Antimicrobial stewardship committees, laboratory directors, microbiologists Presenter: Elizabeth Palavecino, M.D. (1)Tan, KE et. al. “Prospective Evaluation of a Matrix-assisted Laser Desorption Ionization—Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry System in a Hospital Clinical Microbiology Laboratory for Identification of Bacteria and Yeasts: A Bench-by-bench Study for Assessing the Impact on Time to Identification and Cost-effectiveness. “J Clin Microbiol, 2012;50(10):3301–8.
