Detection of VRE: VanA and vanB genes by PCR
MetadataShow full item record
In clinical laboratories the phenotypic detection of low-level vancomycin resistance in enterococci is problematic. Rapid detection of vancomycin resistant enterococci (VRE), in particular those that carry the vanA or vanB genes, may minimize transmission within a hospital and therefore reduce the risk of colonization and infection. © 2010 Springer Science+Business Media B.V.
