Abstract:
Knowledge of the serotype of Pasteurella multocida (P. multocida) involved in an outbreak is essential in order to constitute effective control measures. Antigenic characterization of P. multocida is accomplished by capsular serogrouping and somatic serotyping. These typing techniques are carried out by reference laboratories only. This often leads to delay in knowing the serotype of the isolate. DNA based techniques for differentiation of serotypes can provide an alternative to conventional serotyping. A PCR-REA technique was standardized to distinguish P. multocida serotypes A:1, A:3 and B:2
