A multiplex real-time PCR assay amplifying fecal
mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was developed that facilitates identifying potential
sources of fecal contamination in surface waters. Primer/Probe sets have been
designed for the following species:Human
Please let us know if we can help with any fecal source
tracking issues by completing the AECL mtDNA assay form.
