A powerful DNA extraction method and PCR for detection of microsporidia in clinical stool specimens



A powerful DNA extraction method and PCR for detection of microsporidia in clinical stool specimens



Clinical and Diagnostic Laboratory Immunology 6(2): 243-246



To establish a sensitive and specific method for the detection of microsporidia in clinical samples, clinical stool specimens of 104 randomly selected human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients with diarrhoea were studied to compare light microscopy and PCR. Fluorochrome Uvitex 2B staining was used for light microscopy.
