Rapid Detection of Bloodstream Pathogens in Oncologic Patients with a FilmArray Multiplex PCR Assay: a Comparison with Culture Methods

The results of the FilmArray® Blood Culture Identification Panel (BCID) (BioFire Diagnostics) and the culture with susceptibility testing of 70 positive blood cultures from oncologic patients were compared. The multiplex PCR assay (BCID) identified 81 of the 83 isolates (97.6%), covered by the panel. The panel produced results in significantly shorter time than standard identification methods, when counted from receiving positive blood cultures bottles to the final results. It is an accurate

slides following Nguyen et al. (2019). For morphological characterization, measurements and pictures were taken from permanent slides using Carl Zeiss Axio Lab. A1 light microscope equipped with a Zeiss Axiocam ERc5s digital camera. For molecular characterization, Multiplex-PCR using primers Mi2F4/Mi2R1, Far/Rar, and Fjav/Rjav was performed following Kiewnick et al. (2013) to quickly identify M. javanica from closely related species in the tropical root-knot nematode group. The D2-D3 region of 28S

The total genomic DNA suspension was centrifuged at 13,000 rpm for 1 min and was quantified and its purity assessed using Thermo Scientific™ NanoDrop spectrophotometers and then stored at −20°C for later use.

Principles of PCR-based assays

DNA-based assays are powerful tools to predict the blood group of an individual and are rapidly gaining in popularity.  DNA, which can be extracted from various sources using commercial kits, is amplified by PCR to obtain a sufficient amount of the target of interest for analysis.  There are different types of PCR assays: standard single PCR (followed by RFLP or sequencing), allele-specific PCR, multiplex PCR, and real-time PCR.  Microarray platforms are a newer application of

The top pairwise identity with N. minor references was 100% for 360F/932R (accession no. MT36688) and BL18/5818 (MT372094), and 99.73% for D2A/D3B (MT371258). In contrast, the highest identity to other members of the Nanidorus sp. was in the range of 96% or lower. A one-step multiplex PCR method was

High-resolution melting analysis as an alternative method for human neutrophil antigen genotyping

Human neutrophil antigen (HNA)-typed granulocyte panels are widely used to screen for the presence of HNA antibodies and to determine antibody specificity. Many laboratories screen donors for HNA genotypes using low-throughput methods such as allele-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR), PCR–restriction fragment–length polymorphism, and multiplex PCR. In the present study, we used a high-resolution melting (HRM) analysis to determine HNA genotypes. For the HRM analysis, purified

Gas Gangrene of Different Origin Associated with Clostridium perfringens Type A in Three Patients Simultaneously Hospitalized in a Single Department of Orthopedics and Traumatology in Poland

April 2015 and 20th April 2015. The three C. perfrin­gens isolates studied had identical biochemical profiles. Two isolates had identical resistance patterns, while the third presented a different profile. Using the multiplex PCR method, all isolates showed the presence of cpa gene encoding α-toxin; furthermore, the presence of the cpb2 gene encoding β2-toxin was confirmed in two isolates. Genotyping with the use of pulsed field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) indicated that the isolates

protocol. The presence of the genes encoding toxins of C. perfringens was confirmed using multiplex PCR amplification according to van (Asten et al. 2009) with specific primers (Genomed). The following fragments of the genes were detected (the gene product, length of the fragment): cpa (α-toxin, 324 bp); cpb (β-toxin, 195 bp); cpb2 (β2-toxin, 548 bp); etx (ε-toxin, 376 bp); iap (ζ-toxin, 272 bp); cpe (enterotoxin, 485 bp). The final images from electrophoresis were processed using QuantityOne software
