Automated Enrichment of Pathogen DNA from Heart Valves

16 April 2018
The SelectNA™plus robot with DNA-free Micro-Dx™ kit reagents (SNP) enriches pathogens and isolates microbial DNA from specimens automatically. In this post, a 16S/18S PCR and sequencing analysis of heart valves and other biopsies from 52 infectious endocarditis patients is discussed. SNP found substantially more relevant pathogens than culture.
