Enterobacter sakazakii has been implicated in a several form of neonatal meningitis with a high mortality rate. In the present study, the species-specific PCR and oligonucleotide array assays were developed to detect the 16S-23S rDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of E. sakazakii. Two pairs of specific PCR primers and 10 oligonucleotide probes were… CONTINUE READING
