Radboud University & NimaGen: Genetic technique reveals pathogens much more accurately

''‘For example, in the Netherlands we monitor coronavirus in hospitals and wastewater, but we can easily expand that to other pathogens’, Coolen says. ‘In addition, we already apply this technique weekly in clinical diagnostics to detect so-called non-tuberculosis mycobacteria, a growing medical problem.''   ''Especially when looking for tiny amounts of a pathogen's DNA in a sea of contamination, such as in wastewater. Jordy Coolen, a PhD student at Radboud university medical center, came up with several solutions to implement sequencing in routine care. His work also included a collaboration with the company NimaGen. With relatively simple steps and lower costs, he was able to very sensitively analyze the genome of microorganisms.''   Link to Radboud University collaboration article: https://www.radboudumc.nl/en/news-items/2023/genetic-technique-reveals-pathogens-much-more-accurately
