Overview of the LIMA technology
The LiMA kit can be used for the detection of bacterial contamination. The LiMA kit tests for an enzyme; NAD dependent DNA ligase which is present in all bacteria tested to date. As such, this assay is especially useful for the detection of general bacterial contamination.
Examples of applications:
Due to the dual amplification cascades, of ligase then of PCR, the LiMA assay is very sensitive and can detect a single bacilli or fraction of the contents of a bacilli. For example, in platelet contamination testing the assay can detect as few as 10 bacilli present in 10 ml platelets.
