LoTempPCR*  with HiFi® DNA polymerase 

unloading the power of automated Sanger sequencing

in DNA testing for Pap cytology specimens

Perform DNA sequencing for HPV genotyping beyond a reasonable doubt -  BMC Clin Path 2009, 9:3 (22 May 2009).   

No-false positive Lyme disease DNA testing;

Validate the DNA of Neisseria gonorrhoeae opa genes beyond a reasonable doubt;

Validate the DNA of Chlamydia trachomatis cryptic plasmid beyond a reasonable doubt;

Using the GenBank database as the standard for validating sequence algorithms;

On 5% of a liquid-based Pap cytology specimen without need of DNA extraction.

These are cutting-edge molecular tests developed by pathologists/ cytotechnologists for pathologists/cytotechnologists to serve gynecologists and their patients at sustainable cost.
