Antibiotic resistance genes detected by multiplex PCR assays in Staphylococcus epidermidis strains isolated from dialysis fluid and needles in a dialysis service.


The rate of the onset of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis infections is increasing in Tunisia. We have isolated 32 S. epidermidis strains from dialysis fluid and needle cultures in dialysis service. The strains were identified by classic methods (colonial morphology, Gram staining, catalase test, coagulase test, and DNase test) as well as by… (More)
