The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is increasingly used as the standard method for detection and characterization of microorganisms and genetic markers in a variety of sample types. However, the method is prone to inhibiting substances, which may be present in the analysed sample and which may affect the sensitivity of the assay or even lead to false‐negative results. The PCR inhibitors represent a diverse group of substances with different properties and mechanisms of action. Some of them are… Expand
