Abstract

We report the results of an international Clostridium difficile typing study to cross reference strain designations for seven typing methodologies and facilitate inter-laboratory communication. Four genotypic and three phenotypic methods were used to type 100 isolates and compare the results to 39 PCR ribotypes identified among the collection.
