|16 April 2018|
On the occasion of this year’s Infectious Diseases Diagnostics Conference held in London on February 21st and 22nd, Rubalskii et al.  presented results obtained with the SelectNA™plus/Micro-Dx™ diagnosis of 97 samples from 52 patients under suspect of infectious endocarditis (IE). Specimens included mainly excised heart valves and blood, but also pacemaker electrodes, haematomas, pericardial abscesses and thrombi.
