Infective Endocarditis - 16S/18S rDNA Diagnosis

Vol 5/2018

Standard diagnosis of infective endocarditis (IE) is based on blood culturing which is limited by its high false negative rate. 16S/18S broad-range rDNA PCR analysis has a higher positivity due to, among others, the detection of mixed infections and fastidious organisms. The recent newsletter focusses on new results from IE comparative studies.

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.
