ATCC Pulsed-Field Type MRSA Panel - Now Available!
ATCC Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Panels now include cultures tested for and organized into either SCCmec type or PFGE type, allowing for rapid selection of the cultures you need for applications such as genetic analysis of SCCmec types, the in vitro evaluation of disinfectants and novel antibiotics, or establishing the performance characteristics of molecular-based assays.
Both MRSA Panels are now available, and include:
- ATCC SCCmec Type MRSA Panel (ATCC® MP-2™) - MRSA strains representing 7 different SCCmec types
- ATCC Pulsed-Field Type MRSA Panel (ATCC® MP-3™) - MRSA strains representing 10 different PFGE types
Data provided for all MRSA strains has also been updated with spa typing, complete with both Ridom and Kreiswirth methods.
