Methods MRSA identification and determination of susceptibility to antibiotics were performed using VITEK 2 identification cards (colorimetric reading). MRSA DNA was defined using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with fluorescent hybridization probes. MecA structural gene was determined by sequencing, identification of sea, seb, sec, tst, and pvl genes was performed using PCR. Identification of MRSA clonal profile was investigated by restriction-modification (RM)-test and by spa… CONTINUE READING
