Streptococcus suis is a worldwide important swine and human pathogen. Despite PCR-assays for identification of S. suis are available, in many diagnostic laboratories this identification is still based on bacteriological and biochemical criteria, mainly using commercial multi-test systems. However, there is a risk that some strains of S. suis can be misidentified using these commercial kits with other streptococcal species or even enterococci. More recently, MALDI-TOF MS (Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization- Time of Flight Mass spectrometry) has emerged as a reliable high-throughput tool for microbiological identification. However, particular identification of S. suis using this approach has not yet been thoroughly reported although this technique could overcome the drawbacks of current routine techniques and may contribute to a better understanding of its impact in animal production and public health
