Ehrlichia chaffeensis DNA, Real-Time PCR
Ehrlichia chaffeensis DNA, Real-Time PCR - Ehrlichia chaffeensis DNA PCR is a highly sensitive method to detect the presence of ehrlichia chaffeensis DNA in clinical specimens.
The diagnosis of ehrlichia chaffeensis infection should not rely solely upon the result of PCR assay. A positive result should be considered in conjunction with clinical presentation and additional established clinical tests. Moreover, this assay cannot differentiate between viable and nonviable organisms. A negative PCR result indicates the absence of ehrlichia chaffeensis DNA at detectable levels in the sample tested and does not exclude the diagnosis of disease.
