These projects also made possible the purchase of new equipment for molecular biology, such as thermocyclers, ultracentrifuges, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) equipment, a Light Cycler (real-time PCR sequence detection system), and a DNA sequencer. With this training and equipment, Georgian scientists have applied molecular methods to the identification and fingerprinting of different pathogens. These modern techniques strengthen the NCDC Georgia laboratory’s capabilities to rapidly respond to urgent public health threats and assist in the detection and tracking of these diseases.
