The polymerase chain reaction: There is not such a requirement for daf. An overview and development of diagnostic protocols at the LCDC. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.

Multiple priming sites on each DNA strand are amplified efficiently by short primers under relaxed conditions and the number of amplicons reproducibly obtained in daf is largely dependent on the short primer sequence rather than length, provided the number exceeds four 5 — 7. The fingerprijting required for effective long chain, dual primer PCR are considerably more stringent with respect to hybridization and enzymatic conditions than for daf.

DNA polymorphism amplified by arbitrary primers are useful as genetic markers. The high sensitivity and specificity of properly targeted long chain primer pairs and the great variety of specimens amenable to PCR analysis, including nonculturable specimens such as paraffin embedded tissues, has generated numerous diagnostic applications 4.

Until then it would seem reasonable to predict that daf technology will provide high versatility while retaining the selectivity and sensitivity of long, dual primer PCR and will shortly be part of the diagnostic trade of clinical microbiologists.

U se of the polymerase chain reaction pcramplification of targeted nucleotide sequences as a means of identifying microorganisms for diagnostic and epidemiologic purposes 12has initiated a transformation in laboratory based approaches to infectious disease diagnosis and was the subject of an earlier LCDC report 3.

Particularly important are the specialized silver staining method 8 required for resolution of small, as opposed to large, amplicons, and the primer concentrations required for effective priming. N Engl J Med. LCDC has begun the analysis of certain pseudomonads using this technology and we will shortly be reporting on its efficacy in our hands. Reiss J, Cooper DN.
