A method for performing a diagnostic assay for the detection of the presence or amount of a microorganism within a sample matrix containing active DNA polymerase, is disclosed. The method utilizes the measurement of DNA polymerase extension activity, wherein the assay comprises the steps of incubating DNA polymerase in the sample matrix with a selected suitable substrate, and performing PCR cycling and detection via the use of a selected suitable nucleic acid probe, thereby to detect endogenous DNA polymerase extension activity in the sample matrix as an indication of the presence or amount of said microorganism.
