Vibrio vulnificus is a Gram-negative bacterial pathogen responsible for the vast majority of bacterially mediated fatalities from the consumption of raw or undercooked seafood in the USA. Vibrio vulnificus-associated septicaemia can occur rapidly (< 24 h); however, methods for the isolation and confirmation of V. vulnificus from seafood samples typically require several days. A real-time PCR assay was developed for V. vulnificus biotype 1 that provides a rapid means of identifying a gene… CONTINUE READING
