Simultaneous identification of pathogens implied in nosocomial pneumonia using DNA arrays

Project: Research

Description

The project consist of the development of a low-density microarray for the diagnosis of 28 major pathogens implied in nosocomial pneumonia. We first amplify target sequences of a molecular marker by consensus primers. PCR products were then hybridized on a glass array. The DNA array wich contains specific capture probes will allow the discrimination of homologous PCR products
