MLVA for Enterococcus faecium

We suggest to use MLVA as an initial screening and typing method of E. faecium isolates in hospital laboratories. Subsequently, representative isolates can be subjected to MLST, to get insight in the global epidemiology of particular MLVA profiles.

For a description of the MLST typing method see the following website: Multi Locus Sequence Typing

The MLVA database is no longer curated. For questions, please contact Janetta Top:
