Samenvatting:

Discriminating between D-tartrate fermenting and non-fermenting strains of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serotype Paratyphi B is of major importance as these two variants have different pathogenic profiles. While D-tartrate non-fermenting S. Paratyphi B isolates are the causative agent of typhoid-like fever, D-tartrate fermenting isolates (also called variant Java) of the same serotype trigger the less dangerous gastroenteritis. The determination of S. Paratyphi B variants requires a time-consuming process and complex biochemical tests. Therefore, a quadruplex real-time PCR method, ba…
