The use of Armored RNA as a multi-purpose internal control for RT-PCR.

Abstract

Real time reverse transcriptase-PCR (RT-PCR) is now used commonly for the detection of viral pathogens in respiratory samples. However, due to potential inhibition of the RT-PCR or inefficient extraction, this sample type can present significant challenges to accurate patient testing. The goal of this study was to create an internal control to be… (More)
