Abstract

This work reports on the application of a microchip system integrating DNA extraction with infrared-mediated (IR) PCR amplification within a single chamber for the detection of of bacterial infections within prosthetic joints. Results show not only the successful integration of DNA extraction and amplification in a single chamber, but an improvement over the PCR detection limit for bacterial infection when compared to conventional molecular biological methods.
