'Real-time' PCR-based detection of Coxiella burnetii using conventional techniques.


The diagnosis of Q fever (Coxiella burnetii infection) relies primarily on the serological detection of specific antibodies. Recently, PCR-based methods have been introduced in diagnostic laboratories. Unfortunately, the fastest and most reliable 'real-time' detection method, which employs the 'online' detection of target nucleotide sequences while the… (More)
