Accuracy of Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization–Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry for Identification of Mycobacteria: a systematic review and meta analysis

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5841357
PMID: 29515167
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-22642-w

[…] evel than Bruker Biotyper. However, Wilen and colleagues compared two MALDI-TOF MS instrumentation platforms and three databases: Bruker Biotyper Real Time Classification3.1 (Biotyper), Vitek MS Plus Saramis Premium (Saramis), and Vitek MS v3.0 (28). The levels of accuracy were not significantly different across the three platforms. However, the Vitek MS v3.0 database could offer modest advantages […]


Rapid identification of mycobacteria from positive MGIT broths of primary cultures by MALDI TOF mass spectrometry

PLoS One
PMCID: 5796708
PMID: 29394275
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0192291

[…] use. It reduces turnaround time and may potentially impact on benefiting patients. Numerous reports have described the performance of the Biotyper (Bruker Daltonics, Germany), Vitek MS RUO (formerly Saramis) and Vitek MS (bioMérieux, France) systems. Both systems use different algorithms for the identification of microbial protein spectra and have been shown to perform similarly for NTM identific […]


Study protocol for One Health data collections, analyses and intervention of the Sino Swedish integrated multisectoral partnership for antibiotic resistance containment (IMPACT)

BMJ Open
PMCID: 5780695
PMID: 29358424
DOI: 10.1136/bmjopen-2017-017832

[…] i and K. pneumoniae isolates is performed by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionisation-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS). For isolates of environmental and human origin, Shimadzu with saramis premium (Shimadzu Corporation, Kyoto, Japan) is used, whereas Bruker Daltonik GmbH (Bremen, Germany) is used for isolates of pig origin.Species identification for clinical isolates is performe […]


Comparison of four automated microbiology systems with 16S rRNA gene sequencing for identification of Chryseobacterium and Elizabethkingia species

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5653830
PMID: 29062009
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-14244-9

[…] ir study performed in South Korea that none of the tested 51 E. anophelis isolates was correctly identified by a Bruker MALDI-TOF MS Biotyper. A VITEK MS research-use-only (RUO) system coupled with a SARAMIS SuperSpectra database successfully identified all 51 E. anophelis isolates, but this system is not available to clinical microbiology laboratories. In our study, 55.5% (27/49) of previously id […]


Evaluation of repetitive PCR and matrix assisted laser desorption ionization time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI TOF MS) for rapid strain typing of Bacillus coagulans

PLoS One
PMCID: 5636150
PMID: 29020109
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0186327

[…] patterns (). The strains included in 2 groups of MALDI type, MALDI type No. 14 (JCA1174 and JCA1175), and MALDI type No. 23 (DSM2350 and DSM2356) were suggested to be identical by the analysis using SARAMIS software (Similarity: ≥ 80%). The 3 strains of rep-PCR type No. 2 (JCA1108, JCA1109, and JCA1115) were separated into different MALDI types (, underlined). […]


Development of a rapid MALDI TOF MS based epidemiological screening method using MRSA as a model organism

PMCID: 5748427
PMID: 28924947
DOI: 10.1007/s10096-017-3101-x

[…] excluded by applying an exclusion list automatically removing horse blood agar specific peaks.We have constructed the PFGE-specific Superspectra in a similar way that the Superspectra of VITEK MS RUO/SARAMIS is constructed. As for any database, the coverage depends on how generally applicable the data it is built on is. The database presented in this study is only tested using strains from a limit […]
