Pre-PCR: When Generating PCR-Compatible Samples Becomes Possible

Peter Rådström’s research is about the developments of pre-PCR processing, a method which aims to generate PCR-compatible samples. Diagnostic PCR is often limited by components that interfere with the amplification of PCR inhibitors and pre-PCR can overcome PCR inhibition without impairing the detection limit, addressing all steps leading to PCR amplification, samples treatment and PCR chemistry. This lowers the need for pure extracts, leading to simplified analysis processes and improved detection limits.
