Article Title: Performance of the Trioplex real-time RT-PCR assay for detection of Zika, dengue, and chikungunya viruses
Figure Lengend Snippet: Analytical performance comparison between MP96 and LC 2.0 RNA extraction platforms in serum and urine. a Normal human serum or b urine pooled from healthy donors was contrived with ZIKV at a dilution of 1:10 before the limit of detection (1:10 BLoD), at the limit of detection (LoD), and at 1:10 after the limit of detection (1:10 ALoD). Twenty replicates of each dilution were extracted using the small volume protocol (0.2 mL) and were tested with the Trioplex assay on the ABI7500 Fast Dx instrument. The same serum ( c ) and urine ( d ) dilutions were tested on the QuantStudio Dx instrument. Mean genome copy equivalents per milliliter (GCE/mL) of viral RNA detected are displayed at each dilution. Error bars represent GCE/mL standard deviation. Straight line represents linear regression of MP96 platform (Roche). Dashed line represents linear regression of LC 2.0 platform (Roche)
Article Snippet: Standard curves were generated and tested with the Trioplex real-time RT-PCR assay on each qPCR instrument, ABI 7500 Fast Dx (ThermoFisher), and QuantStudio Dx (ThermoFisher).
Techniques: RNA Extraction, Standard Deviation
