Abstract

A multiplex PCR assay which combines detection of bacteria of the genus Listeria, Listeria monocytogenes serotypes 1/2a and 4b, and epidemic clones I, II, and III of L. monocytogenes was developed. The assay provides a rapid, reliable, and inexpensive method for screening and subgrouping this important food-borne pathogen.
