Abstract

Isolation and identification of obligate anaerobic bacteria is labour intensive and time consuming. This has led to the increased application of molecular tools to circumvent part of this problem. We report here the development of a rapid, accurate and cost-effective method to isolate and identify Fusobacterium necrophorum species from South Australian wallaby populations using a supplemented medium (BHIRS) in conjunction with a "Cycliplex PCR" method which involves a stepwise-selective amplification of target PCR products. This report demonstrates the complementation of phenotypic characterization by PCR for accurate and fast identification of F. necrophorum isolates from wildlife origin.
