A rapid, reliable, and inexpensive method for detection of di- and trinucleotide repeat markers and disease loci from dried blood spots.


We used a rapid and inexpensive method for studying the FMR1 CGG-repeat from dried blood spots, prepared from heel pricks, finger pricks, or an aliquot of blood from a venipuncture. The procedure includes a single tube for preparation of template DNA for PCR and minimal handling, avoiding opportunities for mislabelling specimens and loss of template. We… (More)
