    Biography
      Dr. Stefan Zimmermann is head of the division bacteriology at the department of infectious disease (University Hospital Heidelberg, Germany). He is speaker of the subdivision of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases of the German Society of Hygiene and Microbiology (DGHM) since 2008 and executive committee member of EFWISG (ESCMID Food- and Waterborne Infections Study Group). His major interests are optimizing the workflow in the microbiology lab to reduce time-to-report and improve patients' outcome, new molecular tests (e.g. mass spectrometry, FTIR) and lab automation as well as gastrointestinal infections.

    Abstract
    Date:  November 10, 2020
    Time: 5:00am (PST), 8:00am (EST), 2:00pm (CET)
     
    Dr. Stefan Zimmermann will talk about the use of Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) for fast and reliable typing of bacteria for outbreak investigations in infection control. He will focus on the use of the IR Biotyper® for serotyping of Streptococcus pneumoniae strains and the benefit of this rapid and easy-to-use technique for the clinical management of pneumococcus infections. General aspects of using the IR Biotyper® for other hygiene relevant strains will be discussed. Several innovative aspects of a new software solution (3.0) such as the use of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) and Principal Component Analysis (PCA) for bacterial subtyping will be presented during the session.
     
    Learning Objectives
    • Strain typing with FT-IR technology
    • Serotyping of Streptococcus pneumoniae by IR Biotyper®
    • Usage of ANN for bacterial strain typing
