Restriction digestion of the amplified product is not necessary but can be used to increase the number of fragments and improve the discriminatory power of this method. Neal and coworkers used this technique to investigate a cluster of neonatal cases with S. marcescens bacteremia (36). They were able to show that the cluster represented cases of pseudobacteremia associated with a contaminated blood glucose/lactate analyzer. A variant of PCR-ribotyping has been used to identify nonculturable pathogens (37,38).
