Abstract

Today, molecular methods have become an essential part of the clinical microbiology laboratory, particularly for the detection and characterization of viral infections and for the diagnosis of diseases due to fastidious bacteria. The advantages of rapid turn-around time and high sensitivity and specifi city are appealing. With the introduction of automation for DNA or RNA extraction followed by real-time PCR, molecular laboratories have become more effi cient and cost-effective.
