Detection of parvovirus B19 DNA offers diagnostic advantages over serology, particularly in persistent infections of immunocompromised patients. A rapid, novel method of B19 DNA detection and quantification is introduced. This method, a quantitative PCR assay, is based on real-time glass capillary thermocycling (LightCycler [LC]) and fluorescence resonance(More)

PCR amplification of Y-chromosomal DNA clearly showed male DNA from paraffin-embedded tumour tissue. The girl had a normal female karyotype without abnormalities of the genital organs.
