Application Note: Validation of a New DNA Extraction Method from Agar or Liquid Swabs for Molecular Detection of MRSA, VRE and KPC Utilizing the NanoCHIP® Microarray Technology
23 May 2014

Hospital acquired infections can be widely prevented through screening of patients before or during hospital admission, and proper patient isolation and management. This study, presented at ECCMID 2014, demonstrates the compatibility of different swabs, with new PCR - NanoCHIP® technology for screening large number of samples for simultaneous detection of MRSA, VRE and KPC in variety of clinical samples.
