Discriminatory powers of various molecular techniques were evaluated for typing of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolated in Siriraj Hospital, Bangkok, Thailand. Thirty MRSA isolates were randomly selected in this study. They were characterized by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, Clal-mecA and Clal-Tn554 polymorphisms, ribotyping, and… CONTINUE READING
