Automated DNA extraction platforms offer solutions to challenges of assessing microbial biofouling in oil production facilities

Abstract

The analysis of microbial assemblages in industrial, marine, and medical systems can inform decisions regarding quality control or mitigation. Modern molecular approaches to detect, characterize, and quantify microorganisms provide rapid and thorough measures unbiased by the need for cultivation. The requirement of timely extraction of high quality nucleic… (More)
