We developed a multiplex PCR-based reverse line blot assay to identify 23 pneumococcal serotypes represented in the polysaccharide vaccine, using 334 well-characterized isolates, representing all 90 serotypes, and 268 "unknowns." The assay identified all target serotypes, but 11, which cross-react with 1 to 4 nonvaccine serotypes, could be distinguished using serotype-specific antisera.
