This comprehensive handbook highlights the triumph and developments of MALDI–TOF mass spectrometry in diagnostic approaches to clinical microbiology over the past decade, and provides insight into new technologies including tandem MS/MS. Presenting the reader with detailed coverage of current research and future opportunities, this volume, divided into two parts, with 21 chapters, includes such topics as:

  • Applications of MALDI–TOF Mass Spectrometry in Clinical Diagnostic Microbiology
  • The Potential of MALDI–TOF MS to Distinguish between Taxonomically Similar Species that Manifest Different Infections
  • Microbial DNA Analysis by MALDI–TOF Mass Spectrometry
  • Development and Application of MALDI–TOF MS for Detection of Resistance Mechanisms
  • Determination of Antimicrobial Resistance using Tandem Mass Spectrometry
  • Top–Down Proteomics in the Study of Microbial Pathogenicity
  • Proteogenomics of Non–Model Microorganisms

Primarily aimed at clinical microbiologists, diagnostic technologists, biomedical scientists, researchers, clinicians, academics and scientists in bio–resource centres, this book is also relevant to researchers, post–graduate scientists, technologists in the food industry, pharmaceuticals and agriculture.
