Stimuli of glanders belong to the potential agents of biological terror. The possibility to use various primers in the identification of B. mallei was investigated and the significance of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was defined within the scheme of laboratory glanders diagnosis in the offered paper. The constructed amplifying test-systems can be used to detect the glanders both in the environmental objects contaminated with B. mallei and in experimental clinical material.
