This book highlights the triumph of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry over the past decade and provides insight into new and expanding technologies through a comprehensive range of short chapters that enable the reader to gauge their current status and how they may progress over the next decade. This book serves as a platform to consolidate current strengths of the technology and highlight new frontiers in tandem MS/MS that are likely to eventually supersede MALDI-TOF MS. Chapters discuss:
Challenges of IdentifyingMycobacterium to the Species level
Identification of Bacteroides and Other ClinicallyRelevant Anaerobes
Identification of Species inMixed Microbial Populations
Detection of ResistanceMechanisms
Proteomics as a biomarkerdiscovery and validation platform
Determination of AntimicrobialResistance using Tandem Mass Spectrometry
