A novel fluorescent in situ hybridization technique for detection of Rickettsia spp. in archival samples
Publication: Research - peer-review › Journal article – Annual report year: 2009
A novel, sensitive and specific method for detecting Rickettsia spp. in archival samples is described. The method involves the use of fluorescently marked oligonucleotide probes for in situ hybridization. Specific hybridization of Ricekttsia was found without problems of cross-reactions with bacterial species shown to cross-react serologically.
