Real-Time PCR: the Key to Rapid Detection of Infectious Agents

Real-Time PCR

Real-Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (real-time PCR) has revolutionized the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases in acute care settings. Through the coupling of the amplification and direct detection of target microbial DNA in a single reaction vessel, real-time PCR drastically reduces the need for microbial culture methods, decreases wait times required for pathogen detection, and […]
