Ebola Virus RNA Stability In Human Blood And Urine In West Africa’s Environmental Conditions
Hemorrhagic Fever, Ebola
Polymerase Chain Reaction
Pubmed Central ID:PMC4734543
Description:We evaluated RNA stability of Ebola virus in EDTA blood and urine samples collected from infected patients and stored in West Africa's environmental conditions. In blood, RNA was stable for at least 18 days when initial cycle threshold values were <30, but in urine, RNA degradation occurred more quickly.
