During this webinar we will discuss the implementation and impact of the MALDI Biotyper® and the MBT Sepsityper® in the clinical microbiology laboratory at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center. We will learn how the implementation of the MBT Sepsityper® rapid sample preparation impacts time-to-result in the identification of organisms directly isolated from positive blood cultures. The components of the MBT Sepsityper® kit will be explained as well as the length of time needed to identify organisms using both rapid and non-rapid sample preparations. Case studies will illustrate the critical time-to-identification for targeted antimicrobial treatment. The webinar will close with a Q & A session.
- Learn about the benefits of MALDI-TOF technology over traditional microbiology identification methods
- Understand the difference in workflow and time-to-result between non-rapid and rapid MBT Sepsityper® sample preparation methods
- How can the MBT Sepsityper® solution affect the treatment of a patient, especially after implementing the rapid sample preparation method
*Lahey Hospital and Medical Center have validated all described non-IVD methods, software, kits and workflows for in-house clinical use.
FDA clearance for Bruker´s MBT Sepsityper® Kit US IVD is pending.
Webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing after live event.
