A novel approach for the detection of DNA using immobilized peptide nucleic acid (PNA) probes and signal enhancement by real-time immuno-polymerase chain reaction (RT-iPCR).


A new approach for the detection of DNA target molecules is described, using capture probes and subsequent signal enhancement by a uniform polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Peptide nucleic acid probes were immobilized in real-time PCR-compatible microtiter plates. After hybridization of biotinylated DNA targets, detection was performed by real-time immuno… (More)
