- Qualitative ultrasensitive detection of
pneumoniae bacteria by real time polymerase chain reaction. This
and differentiates a genomic target and two virulence factors,
Studies have shown that while magA presents exclusively in the
K1 capsular serotype, rmpA can be detected in either K1 or K2
capsular serotypes and also in approximately two-thirds of
non-K1/K2 capsular serotypes.
