Abstract

An improved PFGE method for the molecular typing of Moraxella catarrhalis is described. A modified PulseNet method using higher concentrations of EDTA and proteinase K, together with increased reagent volumes and incubation temperatures resulted in improved results and a more rapid turnaround time compared to PFGE methods currently used.
