Table 4 Comparison of fingerprints from multiple production lots of commercially prepared RB51 vaccine. Non-sequential production lots are compared with B. abortus biovar 1 laboratory strains including the RB51 parental strain, 2308.

From: Brucella 'HOOF-Prints': strain typing by multi-locus analysis of variable number tandem repeats (VNTRs)

  1. α Strain 19 also amplified allele 6 in some cultures. β The fingerprint pattern of strain 2308 was derived from a single analysis instead of the usual duplicate analysis.
