  1. a The comparison between BOX-PCR analysis and F-BOX-PCR analysis separated in agarose gel electrophoresis or in capillary electrophoresis was done considering eight strains belonging to B. cereus (G+C content 35%), to the family Geodermatophilaceae (G+C content 60%) and to E. coli (G+C content 50%). The analysis was done in duplicate considering two independent DNA extractions (numbered 1, 2), two independent PCR amplifications (1, 2) and two independent agarose gel runs or sample injection in the sequencer (1, 2)
  2. b The numbers express the ratio of HEX-labeled amplicons detected by capillary electrophoresis versus unlabeled amplicons detected on agarose gels
  3. c The numbers express the ratio of 6-FAM-labeled amplicons detected by capillary electrophoresis versus unlabeled amplicons detected on agarose gels
  4. n.d. not determined.
  5. n.a. not applicable.
