The most limiting steps while using this technique are the extractions of genomic DNA of amplifiable quality and availability of oligonucleotides with high specificity for different species, and cross-contamination, which has been the problem in the standardization of molecular methods.
As a control to verify amplifiable DNA or to detect the presence of PCR inhibitors in the clinical samples, a PCR designed to amplify the human gene for 0-globin was carried out as described by Bialek et al.
The Quantidex DNA assay reports amplifiable DNA, rather than bulk DNA, and predicts performance in targeted NGS assays that rely on similar enzymatic methods to generate target-enriched, sequenceable libraries.
