A new collection of phages for typing methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus



A new collection of phages for typing methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus



Zhurnal Mikrobiologii, Epidemiologii, i Immunobiologii 1994(2): 20-23



A new collection of phages for typing methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) is proposed. The collection includes phage 85 (modified by the MRSA strain), capable of selecting strains with the similar specificity of the restriction-modification system, and 9 MRSA-induced phages. The latter differentiate MRSA strains according to the specificity of prophages present in bacterial cells. The use of this phage collection has permitted the typing of MRSA strains insensitive to the phages of the international collection. Among these cultures an epidemic strain has been detected and the source of its spread in the burn center has been established.
