Advantages of the QIAxcel System for Bacterial Genotyping

Published 25 January 2016 | By QIAGEN

Comparative Genomic Fingerprinting (CGF) is an advanced method for C. jejuni subtyping developed at Laboratory for Foodborne Zoonoses, Public Health Agency of Canada, Lethbridge, Alberta, CA. This method generates data that, while highly concordant with MLST, provides additional discriminatory power required for a range of epidemiologic applications, including case cluster detection and outbreak detection. Integration of the QIAxcel Advanced platform into the CGF workflow has led to a high-throughput and low cost subtyping assay that is suitable for deployment in the context of a national laboratory surveillance system.
