Biosafety Level 1

Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

Comments
Restriction digests of the clone give the following sizes (kb): EcoRI--3.2; BamHI--3.2; HindIII--3.2; BssHII--2.7, 0.45.
A single gel purification of the PCR generated probe is necessary since flanking regions will co-amplify with the gene specific sequence. Failure to do so often results in high backgrounds and false positives with clinical E. coli strains.
A hybridization probe may be generated using the following vector specific PCR primers: modified T3 = 5'-CCCCTCACTAAAGGGAACAAAAGCTG-3' and modified T7 = 5'-CGCGTAATACGACTCACTATAGGGCGAA-3'.
