In culture collections, strains are controlled after preservation to guarantee their viability, purity and identity. For filamentous fungi, the identity is traditionally verified by performing morphological analyses with the support of DNA sequencing if required. These methods are particularly time-consuming and require extensive knowledge of mycology. In this study, matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) was evaluated as an alternative method for fast, robust and objective identity controls in the routine work of the BCCM/IHEM fungal col…
