Waiting four weeks for DNA PCR result...

Jul 1, 2001

Dr. H, I saw the question about the DNA PCR test being accurate several days after being drawn. I've been waiting four weeks for my DNA PCR to be conducted. I'm assuming my sample has been frozen (hoping). Is this going to be a reliable test? I'm starting to wonder if it will be.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Freezing the sample will not affect the results.

What strain?
Counts, what do they mean
