Abstract

Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS) analysis in conjunction with the direct formic acid (FA) sample processing method was evaluated for the ability to differentiate the closely related species of Candida albicans and Candida dubliniensis. The results showed that MALDI-TOF-MS, using the direct FA method, was reliable to differentiate between these species.
