of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in a university hospital setting by using novel software for spa repeat determination and database management.
Each offers fun-filled activities for the adventurous pair that teach different elements of basic typing.
Look for "Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing For Kids" on CD-ROM in early 1995.
Typing one-handed or with mobility problems can make Qwerty difficult to use, and individuals with disabilities are finding the New Standard keyboard helpful.
Greatly simplified hunt & peck typing on alphabetical keys, color-coded on the NSK535R.
Characterization of the staphylococcal chromosome cassette mec (SCCmec) was performed by typing
the ccrA/B gene complex, the mec complex, and by means of a PCR strategy, which detects structural variants of SCCmec covering the entire genetic element (2-6).
Instructor Deluxe enables students, along with other members of their family and working professionals, to quickly learn or enhance keyboarding skills at their own pace.
was done according to the Public Health Laboratory Service (PHLS), London, United Kingdom guidelines (4).
PCR fingerprinting has been used as the major typing
technique in the ongoing global molecular epidemiologic survey of C.
However, recent molecular typing
failed to support this hypothesis in some studies (7-9).
Isolates from patients in Iceland, the Netherlands, and Scotland were referred to the England and Wales Public Health Laboratory Service (PHLS) Laboratory of Enteric Pathogens for phage typing
and antibiogram analysis.
For strains that failed to give type-specific products, alternative typing
primers were used that included a G1-specific primer (nac9) and a P-specific primer (nac10).
The clinical laboratory has several critical roles in controlling hospital-acquired infections: accurately identifying nosocomial pathogens, detecting unexpected antimicrobial-drug resistance, and epidemiologic typing
This report discusses the following issues related to typing
of group A streptococci (GAS): The development and use of the 5' emm variable region sequencing (emm typing
) in relation to the existing serologic typing
system; the designation of emm types in relation to M types; a system for validation of new emm types; criteria for validation of provisional M types to new M-types; a list of reference type cultures for each of the M-type or emm-type strains of GAS; the results of the first culture exchange program for a quality control testing system among the national and World Health Organization collaborating centers for streptococci; and dissemination of new approaches to typing
of GAS to the international streptococcal community.
Strains were transported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, for emm typing
, where serogrouping, T typing
, and opacity factor determinations were repeated, and emm typing
was performed (4,5).
