Direct detection of human Staphylococcus aureus carriage in the nose using the Lightcycler Staphylococcus kit.

Abstract:
The Lightcycler Staphylococcus kit is a diagnostic tool for direct real-time detection of Staphylococcus aureus in clinical materials. We show here that detection of S. aureus nasal carriage using this test is hampered by competition of DNA from coagulase-negative staphylococci. However the test is well suited for species identification after culture and the identification of high-load S. aureus carriers.
