Özet

Introduction: Clonal relationships of Klebsiella pneumoniae strains obtained during an epidemic and after a one-year post-epidemic (non-epidemic) period in the same neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) using pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and repetitive polymerase chain reaction (rep-PCR) by the DiversiLab (DL) system were investigated, and the results of both molecular techniques were evaluated.
