The PBRT 2.0 Kit is intended for molecular typing of plasmid conferring drug resistance in Enterobacteriaceae.
PBRT 2.0 Kit
The PBRT 2.0 system is a PCR-based assay that allows fast and easy plasmid characterization and molecular identification through replicons detection. Together with a convenient format the system represents a valid tool to test a wide panel of bacterial strains and has been extensively used to classify plasmids, following the dissemination of resistance determinants in different countries and environments (Carattoli A. et al., 2009).
