Molecularbiology and Clostridium difficile

For the detection of genetic markers of Clostridium difficile, tgcBIOMICS has established several PCR protocols of high sensitivity and specificity, for example:

  • C. difficile ribotyping as suggested by the Robert-Koch-Institute
  • detection of the binary toxin genes (cdtA/B)
  • detection of the toxin genes tcdA and tcdB
  • detection of a shortend variant of the tcdC gene
