Nucleic-acid sandwich hybridisation detected adenovirus in nasopharyngeal aspirates from children with acute respiratory infections within 20 h. The differentiation between subgroups of adenovirus (B and C) and the lack of false positives indicated the specificity of the method. The reference test was detection of an adenovirus protein (hexon) by means of(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the efficacy of punch biopsies and cervical scrapes in the detection of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA from the cervix and compare the results with the histopathologic diagnosis. METHODS The specimens were collected simultaneously, and HPV DNA was detected using a liquid hybridization test. (More)
In solid-phase minisequencing, a defined point mutation is detected in microtiter plate-immobilized DNA by a single nucleotide primer extension reaction. We have here developed the method into a colorimetric assay and applied it to the detection of the Z mutation of the alpha 1-antitrypsin gene. We used novel nucleoside triphosphates modified with(More)
