A quantitative comparison between discriminatory indexes and concordance among multilocus variable-number tandem-repeat analysis (MLVA), pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), automated ribotyping, and phage typing has been performed, testing 238 Salmonella enterica serotype Enteritidis isolates not epidemiologically correlated. The results show that MLVA is the best choice, but each typing method provides a piece of information for establishing clonal relationships between the isolates.

Abstract

A quantitative comparison between discriminatory indexes and concordance among multilocus variable-number tandem-repeat analysis (MLVA), pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), automated ribotyping, and phage typing has been performed, testing 238 Salmonella enterica serotype Enteritidis isolates not epidemiologically correlated. The results show that MLVA is the best choice, but each typing method provides a piece of information for establishing clonal relationships between the isolates.
