A novel method for sample delivery and testing of whole blood: gel strip PCR for point of care (POC) molecular diagnostics

Abstract

Testing of whole blood in miniaturized PCR is compromised by the opaque nature of whole blood that leads to physical masking of a fluorescent signal. We demonstrate a method to perform real-time PCR with whole blood that avoids interference from the opacity of whole blood.
