Novel Diagnostic Procedures Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight analysis mass spectrometry (MALDI–TOF MS) is a relatively new technology that provides fast, accurate, and relatively inexpensive identification of bacteria and fungi growing in culture [55]. 5% trifluoroacetic acid). The plate is dried and placed into the chamber of a mass spectrometer, in which the dried spot is hit by a laser. The matrix protects the microbial proteins, and aids in desorbing and ionizing microbial proteins (primarily highly abundant ribosomal proteins).

The condition of the bone samples is likely more homogeneous among joint replacement patients than patients with various stages and locations of bone infections; therefore, results of different studies can be more readily compared.
