For the isolation and identification of Clostridium perfringens in samples.

Clostridium perfringens is commonly found in the gastrointestinal tract of warm-blooded animals; as well as in terrestrial and aquatic environments. The virulence of the organism is associated with as many as 17 exotoxins, five of which are considered to be the major toxins (alpha, beta, epsilon, beta-2, and iota). For toxin genotyping, PCR can be performed after the identification and isolation of C. perfringens. See Clostridium perfringens toxin genotyping PCR for additional information and cost.
