Direct identification of clinically relevant microorganisms

Decreasing turnaround time is a paramount objective in clinical diagnosis. We evaluated the discrimination power of Raman spectroscopy when analyzing microcolonies from nine bacterial and one yeast species directly on solid culture medium after a shortened incubation time of 6 h (compared to 24 hour for macrocolonies). This approach, that minimizes sample preparation and culture time, would allow resuming culture after identification to perform downstream antibiotic susceptibility testing.
