A rapid multiplex PCR (m-PCR) method that allows the simultaneous detection, in a single tube, of six commonly encountered waterborne pathogens is developed. The target genes used were: the aerolysin (aero) gene of Aeromonas hydrophila, the invasion plasmid antigen H (ipaH) gene of Shigella flexneri, the attachment invasion locus (ail) gene of Yersinia enterocolitca, the invasion plasmid antigen B (ipaB) gene of Salmonella typhimurium, the enterotoxin extracellular secretion protein (epsM) gene… CONTINUE READING
