Project Number: 6612-32000-005-03
Start Date: Jun 01, 2011
End Date: Sep 30, 2011
Bacteria will be cloned and a single clonotype will be tested for resistance to a custom made panel of antimicrobials important in human and veterinary medicine using the semi automated broth microdilution sensititre system. The isolate will be maintained frozen at -80C and lyophilized. The isolate will also be subjected to pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) using a single enzyme digestion. Additional enzyme digestions will be done upon request or if the isolate is identified as part of a human food borne outbreak.
