Abstract

We evaluated the performance of the Bruker Biotyper and the bioMérieux Vitek MS with both the SARAMIS v4.09 and Knowledge Base v2.0 databases for the identification of 203 non-glucose-fermenting Gram-negative rods that had previously been identified by 16S rRNA gene sequencing. Including those that underwent repeat testing, 96.6%, 90.1%, and 93.6% of isolates, respectively, had identifications that agreed with the previous identification.
