Abstract:

The research latex product was done to identify , , and . The comparison with two commercialized latex reagents was made using 190 wild-type strains (96 , 63 , 31 ); they corresponded to the French clinical and environmental distribution of the isolates. The three latex kits tested efficiently identified all the isolates within 15 min. Only the research latex product is able to identify and . The research latex product is a rapid and easy tool to identify the majority of the clinical and environmental isolates. Latex agglutination is a rapid technique to identify isolates. Therefore, the authors developed latex reagents which allow the identification of the majority of the clinical and environmental in 15 min. The research latex product is a reliable and rapid tool to identify the most frequent in clinical and water samples.
