Detection of mecA, blaZ and aac(6')-aph(2) gene of staphylococci by PCR


Detection of mecA, blaZ and aac(6')-aph(2) gene of staphylococci by PCR



Korean Journal of Clinical Pathology 21(6): 505-511



Background: Staphylococci are major nosocomial pathogens and reveal an increase in resistant strains such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. For treatment of infection and prevention of dissemination, rapid and reliable identification methods are required but the conventional bacterial identification and susceptibility tests require at least 24 hours.
