Abstract

Two strains included in a whole-genome sequencing project for methicillin-resistant (MRSA) were identified as non- when the sequences were analysed using the bioinformatics software ALEX (www.1928diagnostics.com, Gothenburg, Sweden). Sequencing of the A gene of these strains identified them as . The collection of MRSA in western Sweden was checked for additional strains of this species. A total of 18 strains of isolated between 2011 and December 2017 were identified.
