2010). 5 min per isolate by MALDI-TOF MS, which included time for specimen preparation and analysis. 45 days using MALDI-TOF MS compared to conventional identification methods. , 2012). Target plate/ slide design allows for high throughput with the ability to batch analyse microorganisms leading to enhanced efficiency. , 2012). Not surprisingly, the reduced turnaround times associated with the use of MALDI-TOF MS for microbial identification can in turn also positively impact patient outcomes.

The user will access these files and imaged plates. Users can see and compare growth over time and have a complete patient overview over multiple samples. Per plate the software can show various scenarios and light conditions. When growth is detected and follow-up work is required, the user will mark a colony and select a specific follow-up task. This sets up a follow-up action in the system which is again visible on the dashboard. , 2014). Most TLA systems are equipped with a “dashboard” (which is a large display screen) that can be positioned in the laboratory which shows the cultures that are ready to be analysed by the technologist.
