摘要

Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) and conventional standard methods were compared for time to pathogen identification and impact on clinical outcomes in peritoneal dialysis-related peritonitis patients. The MALDI-TOF MS method identified the causative microorganisms earlier (average time saved, 64 h for all pathogens), and patients had a shorter hospital stay (mean±standard deviation, 5.2±4.8 days versus 8.2±4.5 days, P=0.001).
