SanAir and Gene Systems to Evaluate qPCR-based Bacteria Detection

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Gene Systems and SanAir Technologies have begun a trial program to identify bacteria in water using qPCR, SanAir said today.
 
Under the partnership, the companies will compare the performance of qPCR testing protocols with those based on culture and DNA sequencing methods.
 
Gene Systems has developed qPCR instruments designed specifically for testing Legionella and other bacteria.
 
SanAir said it will complete the initial phase of the study in mid-June.
 
HC Information Resources and Klenzoid Water Treatment will collect samples for the study.
