SANTOS, Carla R. et al. Use of FTA elute card impregnated with cervicovaginal sample directly into the amplification reaction increases the detection of human papillomavirus DNA. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2012, vol.43, n.1, pp. 389-392. ISSN 1517-8382.

This study aimed to evaluate the use of the FTA elute cardTM impregnated with cervicovaginal sample directly in the PCR amplification for detection of HPV-DNA. The results were compared to a reference technique. This method was more efficient than the protocol indicated by the manufacturer, identifying 91.7% against 54.2% of the positive samples.

Keywords : HPV; cervical cancer; FTA elute; molecular detection.
