Abstract

A rapid pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) protocol for subtyping of Streptococcus suis serotype 2 was developed and evaluated using 27 clinical isolates from 22 epidemiologically unrelated patients. Results were matched against antibiogram, virulence genotyping and multi locus sequence typing (MLST). PFGE appeared to be the most discriminatory with numerical index of discrimination (D) equal to 0.87.
