Abstract
A method for distinguishing among Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains using rand om amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) typing was evaluated for reproducibilit y and discriminatory power. A total of 200 isolates, blinded in triplicate, were evaluated by RAPD. All 600 samples were typeable; 197 of 200 isolates gave identical results on all three occasions, and 131 distinct RAPD types were identified.
