Fifty nosocomial isolates of Serratia marcescens, collected in six Belgian hospitals between 1986 and 1990, were characterized by using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) with XbaI. The results were compared with those previously obtained by three other methods: biotyping, esterase electrophoresis typing and ribotyping with EcoRI and HindIII. Macrorestriction analysis (42 PFGE groups) and esterase typing (42 zymotypes) proved to be the most discriminating, followed by ribotyping (28 ribotypes) and biotyping (10 biochemical profiles). Biotyping would serve as a screen to identify isolates, due to its accessibility. Esterase typing provided a reliable tool to make subdivisions within biotypes because of congruence between biochemical groups and esterase patterns. Additional discrimination was still achieved by ribotyping and PFGE. It is concluded that the combined results of these four markers were useful for distinguishing all epidemic and sporadic isolates.

Over a 3-month period, six immunocompromised patients developed one or more episodes of Burkholderia pickettii bacteremia and/or catheter infection. Vials of a commercially available, "sterile" saline for injection which had been used for flushing the patients' indwelling intravenous devices were implicated as the common source of the organisms. No further cases were diagnosed once the use of this saline was discontinued. Twenty-six isolates, including 9 outbreak-related strains from case patients and contaminated saline as well as 17 control strains, were tested comparatively by biotyping, ribotyping with EcoRI and HindIII, and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) with SpeI. Macrorestriction analysis revealed nine PFGE groups and was more discriminating than ribotyping (seven ribotypes) and biotyping (two biovars). Among the outbreak-related isolates, one B. pickettii type was found by the three typing methods. Furthermore, PFGE was useful for subdividing ribotypes and for distinguishing isolates involved in the outbreak from all epidemiologically unrelated strains. [less ▲]
