d methods, while avoiding the contamination and low yields that can be encountered with other approaches.

"Molecular diagnostics offers the potential to increase the speed, efficiency and accuracy of pathogen detection, but its use has been limited by the fact that isolation of the nucleic acids needed for the analysis is often laborious and inefficient, yielding low quality material that is contingent on the target organism and the sample matrix," noted David Saul, Ph.D., senior scientist at ZyGEM.  "We believe our enzymatic approaches have the potential to enable the rapid preparation of high quality DNA and RNA for the timely detection of biothreat pathogens from a variety of sample matrices simply and efficiently, which could be especially valuable for use in demanding conditions in the field.  We are very pleased to be working with the infectious disease experts at USAMRIID to assess and develop new approaches that seek to harness our unique enzymes to help combat potential biothreats."
