Diversity of Pathogens in 16S rDNA Routine Diagnosis

Vol 3/2018
Two case reports address the added value of broad-range 16S rDNA PCR in pathogen diagnosis. In case 1, standard methods were negative while PCR identified a pathogen. In case 2, an unusual bacterial pathogen was identified by PCR. Read also an application note on the benefits of culture-independent diagnosis of pathogens in daily routine.
