Plate 2. (A): Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) showing the DNA of ESBL producing isolates separated on gel electrophoresis. (B): PCR showing BlaCTX-M Gene production by ESBL-producing isolates (white arrows). M is the primer and PC is positive control. (C): PCR showing no BlaTEM Gene production by ESBL producing isolates. M is the primer and PC is positive control and NC is negative control. (D): PCR showing no BlaSHV gene production by ESBL-Producing isolates. M is the primer and NC is negative control
