Facundo Fernandez staph infection test

CDC research chemist Carrie Pierce (left) and Georgia Tech School of Chemistry and Biochemistry associate professor Facundo Fernández have developed a test that uses mass spectrometry to quantify the number of Staphylococcus aureus organisms in a large number of samples in just a few hours, compared to a day or two for culturing techniques typically used to detect this bacterium.
