Evaluation of a fluorescence-based PCR method for identification of serogroup a meningococci



Evaluation of a fluorescence-based PCR method for identification of serogroup a meningococci



Journal of Clinical Microbiology 41(4): 1766-1768



Standard and fluorescence-based PCR assays were developed for the identification of serogroup A meningococci by detection of the mynA gene. This assay was evaluated using bacterial cultures but provides the sensitivity required for the detection of the mynA gene from bodily fluids during meningococcal disease.
