Cross reactivity of Neisseria meningitidis crgA diagnostic PCR primers with nontypeable haemophilus influenzae.

Clinical laboratory, 60(9):1425–1429.

CrgA based PCR are usually used for diagnosis of Neisseria meningitidis while the crgA gene was observed in the genomes of Haemophilus influenzae. In this study, we aimed to evaluate whether the crgA primers routinely used in the diagnosis of N. meningitidis could cross react with H. influenzae isolates.
