ssp PCR analysis of C. perfringens food poisoning isolates. Representative results of a PCR assay with primers designed to amplify ssp1 (A), ssp2 (B) or ssp3 (C) specific PCR products. Results are shown for control strain 13 (a known ssp1, 2 and 3-positive strain) and representative food poisoning isolates SM101 and NCTC8239. Marker indicates the migration of DNA size markers (Gene Ruler™ 1-kb ladder; Fermentas).
