Use of commercial cards for freeing DNA from mycobacterial strains

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new commercial system for rapid extraction of DNA, consisting of a card on which a drop of bacterial suspension is spotted, was evaluated with 43 mycobacterial strains. Once dried, a small disk of the seeded area was directly transferred in the amplification mixture. All the samples produced good quality amplification products which were satisfactorily sequenced.
