Vancomycin-resistant enterocci (VRE) PCR test

eagle-i ID


Resource Type

  1. Material analysis service


  1. Resource Description
    "Qualitative (plus/minus) ultra-sensitive real-time PCR-based detection of the VanA and/or VanB genes mediating vancomycin resistance. A positive result indicates colonization and/or infection with a vancomycin-resistant bacteria (usually enterococcus). A spiked internal control gene assures efficient PCR amplification and lack of PCR inhibition for stool-containing samples."
