automated extraction; and 20.96 for the manual method. As the target levels decreased, the degree of divergence increased between the three systems. Although each of the three systems detected the target at the lowest level tested, the fully automated system did so at least four cycles earlier in each instance. Te fndings of this study suggest that the fully automated BD MAX system may have better extraction efciency compared to an automated extraction system or a manual extraction method and this may result in a higher potential for PCR amplifcation and detection, particularly for samples with low target loads. Figure 4. Automated extraction: PCR versus full automation. Target = Salmonella typhimurium through the automated and manual extraction procedures respectively and the resulting DNA was analyzed using a PCR instrument. Te third sample set was extracted and amplifed in a single operation using the fully automated system. Comparisons of extraction efciencies for the manual method versus the fully automated system and the automated extraction versus the fully automated system are shown in Figure 3 and Figure 4, respectively. Te sample with the highest analyte level (5 x 106 CFU/ml) yielded Ct values of 20.73 for the fully automated system; 21.38 for References 1.
