Rapid, Accurate Diagnosis of Clostridium difficile Infections

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a symptomatic infectious disease caused by the anaerobic, spore-forming bacterium called Clostridium difficile. Recently CDI has become increasingly prevalent worldwide. The severity of the infection is also on the rise, meaning the requirement for a rapid and accurate method of diagnosis [...]

xxpress RT-qPCR to Analyse the Quality and Quantity of cDNA

A recent article by the Queensland University of Technology investigated candidate genes for facilitating freshwater adaptation in palaemonid prawns. These genes were identified and their expression validated in the model species M. koombooloomba. Abstract Background: The endemic Australian freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium koombooloomba, provides a [...]

PCR helps to create potential myeloma blood test

Researchers from the NIH, the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute of Harvard Medical School have used the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to help to create a potential multiple myeloma diagnostic. The results were published in the [...]

Genetic test uses qPCR to cut kidney transplant rejection

A team of researchers from the USA, Spain and Mexico have used qPCR (quantitative polymerase chain reaction) to help to develop a genetic blood test that could spot those people at risk of rejecting their transplanted kidney up to three [...]

The applications of PCR

Once an exciting new breakthrough and the subject of a Nobel Prize, PCR (polymerase chain reaction), is now used as routine technique in many laboratories. PCR, developed in 1983, amplifies DNA, allowing analysis of very small amounts of DNA, or [...]
