A novel method, based on PCR Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism Analysis (PRA) of a part of the tuf gene (370 bp), was designed for the identification of 11 staphylococcal species, including the most common staphylococcal pathogens. A total of 258 clinical isolates were validated by this assay, and the results were in concordance with those obtained by the reference method of Kloos and Schleifer. © 2003 Elsevier B.V.
