strains in 2015, two patients carried the strains that had the cpb2 gene, indicated an extremely severe course of these infections (Brzychczy-Włoch et al. 2016). The presence of the gene for β2-toxin in C. perfringens strains causing soft tissue infections in humans requires further observation, which could be assisted by the application of genetic analysis of this pathogen in every clinical case involving C. perfringens.
Molecular diagnostics of the strains isolated also allowed their final

elachista (MH144207, KC618472, and KC618473), H. guangdongesis (MF425735), H. cyperi (MG857126), and H. monthi (MH144208) were 2.7, 14.7, 12.3, and 20.4%, respectively. From the results of COI sequences, we concluded that SG936 and SG153 populations were not H. elachista, but are just closely related species. Combining morphological and molecular diagnostics, SG936 and SG153 samples were identified as H. oryzae. This was the first time to study molecular characteristics of H. oryzae.

Molecular diagnostics is the fastest growing area of clinical laboratory medicine. The ability to rapidly amplify genes of bacterial, viral, or human origin, and the development of DNA array platforms, are driving a technology revolution in the clinical laboratory. A DNA-based testing approach is particularly applicable to blood bank and transfusion medicine for rapid, cost-effective antigen typing. Experience with DNA-based methods during the past decade has shown that these
