The bacteriology course for the Swedish veterinary students starts on September 19 and we would like to wish the students very welcome to this course. We hope that the students will find VetBact useful during their studies and we appreciate all kinds of feed-back, which will help us to improve VetBact and its different parts. For this course, we have created four (soon to be five) new virtual cases based on MALDI-TOF MS (Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization – Time of Flight Mass Spectroscopy). This technique has proved very useful in clinical bacteriology, because it can be used to identify bacteria directly from colonies.
