Crude Sample PCR

The ability to use crude samples as template in PCR eliminates the need for laborious and costly DNA extraction procedures and allows for faster turnaround times from sampling to results.

The feasibility of high-throughput or routine crude sample PCR – particularly for diagnostic applications – has remained low due to the fact that wild-type Taq is easily inhibited by cellular debris, yielding low success rates and inconsistent results.
