Is it true that when perfoming lab tests for Chlamydia LPS antigen using
"female" swabs, extraction buffers, and reaction tubes (eg. microtitre
plates) that only certian plastic would suffice?
I have been told that I should use polyethylene tubes and NOT
polypropylene! Glass is okay!
Apparently the LPS "sticks" to some plastics???!!!
Is this true? Are there any references?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
