Abstract

A standardized PCR-based linear array genotyping assay has been developed (Roche Molecular Systems) allowing the concurrent typing of 37 human papillomavirus (HPV) types. A component of this assay, the PCR amplicon detection protocol, requires the use of a shaking water-bath incubator for amplicon/probe hybridization and subsequent stringent washing, which many laboratories may find cumbersome or simply not possess. In this study, the utility of a dry-air incubator in substitution of the recommended shaking water-bath for use in this assay was confirmed. DNA was extracted by AmpliLute method from 150 PreservCyt specimens collected from patients undergoing ablation treatment for histologicall..
