If we want to use PFGE for source tracking in a large watershed like the Santa Ana River, a very extensive DNA fingerprint library is needed, because our study shows that even a minor change in the DNA fingerprint can significantly affect clonal groupings," Ibekwe explains.
The process can be completed within 8 h with a discriminatory power comparable to that of PFGE (17).

Their isolates were not available for PFGE testing.
Each organism has its own particular fingerprint in PFGE, which [Jett] has shown [to be] true in his flow cytometer as well, so the ability to analyze that fingerprint quickly and with accuracy would be invaluable.
