Gindreau E, Walling E, Lonvaud Funel A. Direct polymerase chain reaction detection of ropy Pediococcus damnosus strains in wine. J Appl Microbiol. 2001;90:535-42 pubmed
..The method proved to be efficient for the early and sensitive detection of ropy Ped. damnosus strains during wine-making. Time-consuming culture and colony isolation steps are no longer needed. ..
