Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


PCR is a sensitive and powerful diagnostic and research tool. Its diagnostic applications in infectious disease, genetics, and cancer will play a prominent role in transfusion medicine in the next several years. However, the indirect effect of PCR on transfusion medicine in terms of increasing our understanding of disease mechanisms and the development of therapeutic agents will be even greater.
