Advanced Stain Test (Fluorescent DNA Stain)
This test is only available from Fry Laboratories, L.L.C. By using a highly specific fluorescent DNA dye, infections and blood-borne biofilm communities can be visualized. This screening test is used to identify structures that stain positive for DNA. We add our dye directly to a sample of blood and observe it under a fluorescent microscope where a photograph and report are then generated based upon the technologist’s findings. Additionally, if no abnormal results are found from the advanced stain procedure, an automatic reflex enrichment test (Organismal Enrichment) is performed to absolutely ensure we can detect any abnormalities. This protocol is to produce a higher yield of detectable infections and biofilm structures.
