OBJECTIVES Antibiotic resistance among Escherichia coli is globally an increasing problem in public healthcare. Understanding the spread of plasmid-mediated ESBL genes is of great importance in elucidating their molecular epidemiology. However, differentiation of subtypes and alleles is frequently hampered by the lack of comprehensive diagnostic tools. We therefore developed a novel universal blaSHV, blaTEM and blaCTX-M subtyping assay based on PCR and Sanger sequencing that results in large… CONTINUE READING
