Ureaplasma species, molecular detection, PCR, plasma
EDTA plasma
1.0 mL

Immediatley following collection, mix sample thoroughly by gentle inverting 8 - 10 times, to prevent clotting


The high sensitivity of amplification by PCR requires the specimen to be processed in an environment in which contamination of the specimen by Ureaplasma DNA is not likely.
