Characterization of coagulase-negative staphylococci by primer-specific polymerase chain reaction and ribotyping.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To analyze, by primer-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and ribotyping, coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS). METHODS: Forty-five clinical isolates of CNS were identified by the API ID32 STAPH system and ribotyping. Additionally, primer-specific PCR was evaluated for identification of clinical strains of Staphylococcus epidermidis… (More)
