I have been asked by a former professor of my department to gather
information regarding the use of PCR for the purpose of detecting
animal viruses (eg FIV & FLV to start), bacteria, parasites and
fungi. The company he works for would like information on the
equipement required & costs, PCR probe kits specific for the
specific infectious agents and any experience others have had.
Any input would be appreciated, including other people or
companies to contact.
Thank you in advance.
