Mass of DNA recovered from swabs loaded with different amounts of M13 and cells. Total (phage + bacterial) DNA mass recovered as determined by Qubit (a), recovered phage:cell ratio (b) and DNA composition by mass (c) in different fractions, as determined by qPCR. Negative controls for qPCR containing no template were not quantifiable after 40 cycles of PCR. Error bars indicate standard deviation among biological triplicates
