The demand for molecular diagnostic tests in medical microbiology has highlighted the need for efficient methods of DNA extraction. In addition, it is preferable for these methods to be automated. An example of such a requirement is for the confirmation of meningococcal disease where rapid, sensitive, and specific procedures are required for public health management purposes. Previous studies have shown that whole blood is the preferred method for the isolation of bacterial DNA in meningococcal… CONTINUE READING
