The experiments were realized by Ognjen Sekulovic, Julian R. Garneau, and Audrey Néron in Pr. Louis-Charles Fortier’s lab.

5 uL volumes of undiluted and 1/100 diluted phage lysates (10e7 to 10e9 PFU/mL) were deposited on top of soft agar overlays containing log-phase cultures of C. difficile test strains. The selected strain panel comprised major PCR ribotypes like 001, 014, 027, and 078, as well as other ribotypes from various origins (humans, animals, environment). The intensities of the clearing zones were recorded.
