- Babesia microti 18S rRNAs are highly abundant in infected clinical samples.
- Reverse transcription PCR is a sensitive method for Babesia microti detection.
- Babesia microti 18S rRNA RT-PCR may be useful for screening blood products.
Babesia are increasingly appreciated as a cause of transfusion-transmitted infection. Sensitive methods are needed to screen blood products. We report herein that B. microti 18S rRNA is over 1,000-fold more abundant than its coding genes, making reverse transcription PCR (RT-PCR) much more sensitive than PCR. Babesia 18S rRNA may be useful for screening the blood supply.
