amplified fragment length polymorphism (aflp) analysis of clostridium novyi, c. perfringens and bacillus cereus isolated from injecting drug users during part of the follow-up investigations associated with an outbreak of severe illness and death among illegal injecting drug users during 2000, 43 cultures of clostridium novyi type a, 40 c. perfringens type a and 6 isolates of bacillus cereus were characterised by amplified fragment length polymorphism (aflp) analysis. among the 43 c. novyi isolates, 23 different aflp profiles were detected. the same aflp profile was detected in isolates from 18 drug users investigated during 2000 from scotland ...200212448684
the bacteriological quality of hospital-prepared infant feeds.twenty-four pasteurized infant feeds, prepared in a glasgow hospital, were examined microbiologically. all produced a satisfactory total aerobic mesophilic count of < or = 1.0 x 10(4) cfu/g (mean 6.3 x 10(1) cfu/g) within 1 h of preparation. bacillus cereus was detected in two infant feeds immediately after preparation and one of these had a b. cereus count of 1.4 x 10(3) cfu/g exceeding the recommended safety limit of < or = 1.0 x 10(3) cfu/g. subsequent storage over a 14 h period at 25 degrees ...19979152818
