    A real-time PCR assay targeting the capsulation locus of Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) was developed. The linear detection range was from 1 to 106 microorganisms per reaction mixture. No H. influenzae other than Hib or any other control bacteria typically found in the upper respiratory tract was detected.
