* Recall: Extracted "ELISA negative samples". They are HDA(toxin A) positive with HDA cloning oligos, but PCR(toxin A) negative with Sara's oligos, and Taqman real-time(toxin B) negative.  So right now is in the process of confirming above results and figuring out the reason for this <br>

* Repeat HDA with HDA cloning oligos on different day by using different aliquots of reagents.  The result is repeatable.  It can also be repeated by doing 2-step HDA reaction <br>

* Optimize phusion enzyme PCR condition for patient samples.  Use optimized condition to PCR toxin A gene of more patient samples. Clone & Seq. these amplicons to check whether there is any deletion in toxin A gene of patient samples. <br>
