Urine is a preferred specimen for nucleic acid-based detection of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) but represents a challenge for microfluidic devices due to low analyte concentrations. We present an extraction methodology enabling rapid on-chip nucleic acid purification directly from clinically relevant sample volumes up to 1 ml and subsequent PCR amplification detection.
