PCR Detection and Confirmation

Polymerase Chain Reaction or PCR technology is used by our lab as a detection method for various organisms using specially designed probes and primers developed exclusively for the laboratory.  

Fungal or bacterial DNA is extracted, purified and combined with specific primer-probe mixes to identify the species of mould or bacteria that may be present in the sample.  

We can perform presence/absence PCR detection for a number of microbes, including Human Bacteroides from a variety of sample types.

Other organisms can be detected by special request. Please contact the lab today for more information.
