MALDI-TOF MS for identification of porcine Brachyspira species


Prohaska, Sarah; Pflueger, V; Scherrer, Simone; Frei, Daniel; Lehmann, Andreas; Wittenbrink, Max Michael; Huber, Helen (2014). MALDI-TOF MS for identification of porcine Brachyspira species. Letters in Applied Microbiology, 58(3):292-298.

Abstract

Significance and Impact of the Study: Current methods for the discrimination of pathogenic Brachyspira hyodysenteriae and Brachyspira pilosicoli from Brachyspira species with low pathogenic potential have proven to be laborious and time-consuming and are therefore not suitable for routine diagnostics. This study describes the evaluation of MALDI-TOF MS for the identification of different porcine Brachyspira species in routine diagnostic laboratories. The results suggest that MALDI-TOF MS is an effective method for the identification of porcine Brachyspira spp. and accelerates diagnosis of swine dysentery and porcine intestinal spirochaetosis.
