Researchers at Uppsala University, Sweden, along with the University of Cape Town and the National Health Laboratory in South Africa, examined co-infections in 20 HIV positive women with a rapid detection sequencing method using rolling circle amplification and the Ion Proton platform. The authors indicate a more comprehensive detection when compared to existing genotyping methods, with the added benefit genomic information being collected. The BluePippin was used to size select samples for Proton template generation.
