Analysis

The practice of examining information to determine what conclusions it indicates,. The information observed in analysis depends on the type of analysis being conducted. For example, technical analysis uses statistics to determine future price movements of securities, while fundamental analysis looks at indicators of a company's intrinsic value. Analysis may involve qualitative or quantitative information, or both. Most forms of analysis have both strengths and weaknesses.

We further investigated the reproducibility of this finding in 16 MRSA strains isolated four years later in 2013, and found that the 3-, 4- and 5-primer MLVA amplification clustered the tested strains in a similar manner (Figure 2).
Additionally, because of the low cost and powerful discriminatory power of the MLVA 14Orsay genotyping approach, we were able to successfully apply this tool to identify the circulating clones of S.
In the MLVA results, we found that patients infected with a Beijing family strain were more likely to be clustered than patients who were infected with a non-Beijing family strain.
A confirmed case was defined as illness in a person with an STEC O157 isolate indistinguishable from both PFGE pattern 2 and MLVA pattern 2 with an isolation date on or after July 1.
