Project: Evaluation of Burkholderia cepacia complex MALDI-TOF MS spectra using SARAMIS Identification software
- project duration
- 14-JUN-06 – 13-JUN-07
- The laboratory of microbiology is exploring the potential of Matrix ASsisted Laser Desroption Ionisation-Time of Flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry for the rapid identification of B. cepacia complex bacteria and other Cystic Fibrosis pathogens that are regularly misidentified. The company AnagnosTec is experienced in the analysis of MALDI-tof MS spectra with their SARAMIS identification software and will identify these mass spectral fingerprints.
