Microbial Infection

Microbial infection of the heart muscle, pericardium, or valves can result in an inflammatory response that can cause cardiac damage, leading to rhythm irregularities or heart failure. To help support the detection of infection, ATCC offers a wide array of ATCC® Genuine Cultures and associated nucleic acids, including those associated with pericarditis, myocarditis, and endocarditis.
