Rapid fluorescent-antibody method with bromelase for identification of group A streptococci.

Abstract

This is a preliminary report on a rapid fluorescent-antibody staining method utilizing the enzyme Bromelase that effectively eliminates nonspecific staining of staphylococci. By this simple method, group A streptococci were accurately identified from 2- to 4-h broth cultures.
