Real-time PCR can rapidly detect methicillin-susceptible and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus directly from positive blood culture bottles



Real-time PCR can rapidly detect methicillin-susceptible and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus directly from positive blood culture bottles



American Journal of Clinical Pathology 124(3): 404-407



We developed, validated, and implemented real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) detection of the femA gene for Staphylococcus aureus and the mecA gene for methicillin resistance directly from BACTEC (Becton Dickinson, Sparks, MD) blood culture bottles showing gram-positive cocci in clusters.
