Pulse field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) currently has been preformed on 22 Salmonella spp. isolates using a new method that distinguishes between different species of Salmonella and gives reproducible results using Pae R7 1 enzyme. This PFGE data, when using the Pae R7 1 enzyme, was compared to the Xba 1 restriction enzyme that is used by CDC (Center for Disease Control) for Salmonella spp isolate comparisons. PFGE results were analyzed using cluster analysis and results were comparable between Pae R7 1 and Xba 1 enzymes for distinguishing differences.
