Automation of the Detection of DNA Sequences for the Laboratory Diagnosis of Viral Infections

Part of the Applied Virology Research book series (AVIR, volume 3)


The ability to directly detect nucleic acid sequences from infected biological fluids and tissue offers significant advantages in the clinical management of viral disease. In particular, a more precise and timely diagnosis is rendered possible, with the resultant advantages in treatment. For the clinical laboratory, time and labor can be reduced, procedures simplified, and organisms which are fastidious to culture can be identified more readily (Tenover, 1988).
