Methods For Detecting Burkholderia pseudomallei and Burkholderia mallei RNA with RT-qPCR
Researchers at TGen and Northern Arizona University (NAU) have developed a method for detecting Burkholderia pseudomallei and Burkholderia mallei from the 16S ribosomal RNA in a sample using a Reverse Transcriptase quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) assay. This assay enables faster, more sensitive detection of B. pseudomallei and B. mallei in a variety of...
