Detection of Rickettsia tsutsugamushi DNA from chiggers by polymerase chain reaction


Detection of Rickettsia tsutsugamushi DNA from chiggers by polymerase chain reaction



Zhonghua Liu Xing Bing Xue Za Zhi 14(5): 307-309



ISSN/ISBN: 0254-6450

PMID: 8137416

Polymerase chain reaction was employed to detect Rickettsia tsutsugamushi DNA from chiggers for the first time. Both adults and larvae were tested. The positive rate of experimentally infected adults was 92.9%. It suggests that PCR is a rapid and sensitive assay for epidemiological study of scrub typhus.
