Total number of successful/attempted cultures. DNA extraction and any subsequent procedures were individually performed for all the isolated colonies from each loop to confirm reproducibility.

The sequence was not found in the database; however, it shared 99% similarity with Allele 8442.

There was a 1.2% mismatch of porB sequence with Allele 958.
