Five typing methods, including biotyping (API ID32; BioMérieux, Marcy l'Etoile, France), quantitative antibiogram typing based on actual zone sizes, plasmid typing, randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis (with primer M13 and primer set ERIC-2-1026), and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), were compared with a previously performed method of DNA fingerprinting by AFLP (amplified fragment length polymorphism analysis) for their performance in the typing of blood isolates of… CONTINUE READING
