From: Characterization of the Taenia spp HDP2 sequence and development of a novel PCR-based assay for discrimination of Taenia saginata from Taenia asiatica

  1. aAll samples were identified to species level by two separate PCRs; a multiplex PCR [6] and the novel HDP2-PCR III described in this study. The numbers shown in bold correspond to samples that could not be differentiated by the HDP2-multiplex-PCR [22].
