Bacterial PCR laboratory is one of
the research and diagnostic units within the Diagnostic Services program
of the ARC-OVR. The laboratory primarily offers diagnostic services for
molecular based detection of bacterial pathogens as well as strain
typing using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). The research component of
the unit focuses on projects that will contribute towards animal health
improvement as well as food security and safety initiatives.
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is a technique that is used to enzymatically amplify copies of a specific region of DNA, in order to produce enough DNA to be adequately analyzed. The technique has the advantage of being rapid, sensitive and very specific. It is also relatively inexpensive.
