Strengthening Laboratory Capacity in Georgia using a MALDI-TOF MS platform

This project proposes to establish timely and accurate identification of organisms using a Maldi-Tof platform, which can improve the quality and timeliness of organism identification as well as introducing the rapid antimicrobial susceptibility testing system (RAST) which can provide same day AST results leading to a possible optimization of antimicrobial prescriptions in healthcare settings. Improving the quality of diagnostic testing in microbiology laboratories will provide more reliable data for surveillance as well as for diagnostic stewardship, and can support clinical decision-making.
