Abstract:   (7273 Views)

Currently, different highly sensitive nucleic acid detection-based protocols used in medical diagnostic laboratories need specific working conditions, and if no optimization is performed, misleading results can be obtained. Limitations of each protocol is different in obtaining an appropriate result. Awareness of these limitations plays an important role in providing a reliable result for physicians and patients. The present study aims to investigate these limitations
