Abstract
Reverse-transcription PCR (RT-PCR) coupled with electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) is a high-throughput nucleic acid-based technology that relies on the accurate measurement of the molecular weight of PCR amplicons that can be used to deduce the base counts (number of As, Gs, Cs and Ts) of DNA. These amplicons represent highly variable regions with information-rich sequences, which are flanked by broad-range primers designed based on highly conserved loci. This technology was first introduced in 2005 for microbial identification and subtyping, and was later applied to influenza virus detection and identification. The influenza RT-PCR/ESI-MS assay...
