↵a The StaphyType Kit (Alere Technologies) was used for DNA microarray analysis. The table shows only the clinically relevant markers, including exotoxins and resistance genes, and does not represent the complete hybridization profile of 334 probes on the array. Full data sets are available upon request. Isolate M10/0061 was CC130/ST130 and had the MLST allelic profile 6-57-45-2-7-58-52,

*spa*type t843, and*spa*repeat succession 04-82-17-25-17-25-25-16-17. Isolate M10/0148 was CC130/ST1764 and had the MLST allelic profile 6-57-45-2-7-193-52,*spa*type t373, and*spa*repeat succession 04-17-25-17-25-16-17. Isolate 21250_V454 was CC130/ST2024 and had the MLST allelic profile 6-57-45-2-219-58-52,*spa*type t8403, and*spa*repeat succession 04-82-17-25-25-25-16-17. Pos, positive; Neg, negative; Variable, MRSA isolates M10/0061 and M10/0148 exhibited weak and/or variable signals for*ccrB1*,*ccrA3*, and*ccrB3*in the primer-directed protocol but yielded positive signals for*ccrB1*and*ccrB3*in the random protocol outlined in the Materials and Methods.
