- Rapid detection of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus in screening samples by relative quantification between the mecA gene and the SA442 geneLonneke G M Bode
Reinier de Graaf Group, Department of Medical Laboratories, Reinier de Graafweg 7, 2625 AD Delft, The Netherlands
J Microbiol Methods 89:129-32. 2012..Here we introduce a PCR system, relative quantification PCR (RQ-PCR), which takes this difference into account. RQ-PCR identifies true MRSA in clinical samples with a specificity that is comparable to the SCCmec-based PCRs...
