In order to make a rapid and definite diagnosis of Salmonella enteritis in children, an enrichment broth culture-multiplex PCR combination assay was devised to identify Salmonella serovars directly from fecal samples. Two pairs of oligonucleotide primers were prepared according to the sequences of the chromosomal invA and plasmid spvC genes. PCR with these… CONTINUE READING
