- Detection of influenza virus from throat and pharyngeal swabs with a nested duplex light cycler RT-PCRMichael Koenig
Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Dept of Pathology, Microbiology Division, Bldg 3738, Room 204, Auf Dem Kirchberg, Landstuhl 66849, Germany
Diagn Microbiol Infect Dis 46:35-7. 2003..A nested PCR reaction using hemagglutination (HA) gene primers confirmed all of the earlier positive PCR reactions. This LightCycler PCR technique was found to be more sensitive than viral culture for influenza virus detection...
- Direct comparison of the BD ProbeTec ET system with in-house LightCycler PCR assays for detection of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae from clinical specimensMichael G Koenig
Landstuhl Regional Medical Center, Auf Dem Kirchberg, Attn Virology, Gebaeude 3738, Zimmer 204, 66849 Landstuhl, Germany
J Clin Microbiol 42:5751-6. 2004..With our study, we proposed an algorithm for C. trachomatis and N. gonorrhoeae testing which involves screening with the BDPT system followed by selective use of our in-house LC-PCR assays...
