Project: Integrated identification and susceptibility testing of Mycobacteria by using DNA technology
- project duration
- 01-JAN-96 – 31-DEC-97
- By the development of probes and the use of reverse dot blot hybridisation the identification and susceptibility testing of mycobacteria can be carried out in two steps: DNA-amplification and hybridisation. The development of this principle and the research to render this principle applicable in the diagnosis of (multi drug resistent) tuberculosis are the aim of this project.
