Methodology

Extraction of enterovirus nucleic acid from specimen, followed by reverse transcription of viral RNA, then amplification and detection of cDNA using real-time, quantitative PCR. An internal control is added to ensure the extraction was performed correctly and the PCR reaction was not inhibited. Viracor-IBT's assay design includes multiple targets to account for viral mutations, which significantly reduces the chance of false negative results.
