Multilocus sequence typing for characterization of methicillin-resistant and methicillin-susceptible clones of Staphylococcus aureus.
Typing of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in a university hospital setting by using novel software for spa repeat determination and database management.
If, on the other hand, you were actually going to type, March into the fray, just keep typing
and ignore the pop-up date suggestion.
was a specialist job skill, only those adept at it did it.
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).
Transfusion 2004;44:187-196) shows that the Guava(TM) PCA and PCA-96 cell analysis systems can perform blood typing
and compatibility testing with great accuracy and sensitivity in the research setting.
was done according to the Public Health Laboratory Service (PHLS), London, United Kingdom guidelines (4).
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.
PCR fingerprinting has been used as the major typing
technique in the ongoing global molecular epidemiologic survey of C.
We report a molecular typing
and epidemiologic analysis of Pneumocystis carinii/pneumonia (PCP) cases diagnosed in our geographic area from 1990 to 2000.
This investigation highlights the importance of standardized protocols for molecular typing
in international outbreaks of foodborne disease.
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).
