Evaluation of the APTIMA Combo 2 Assay using self-administered vaginal swabs for the detection of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae

Research output: Contribution to journalA1: Web of Science-article

Abstract

We report on the performance of the APTIMA Combo 2 assay for the detection of chlamydial infection and gonorrhea using self-administered vaginal specimens in specimen transport medium and specimen kept dry. The results are compared with the results using the Amplicor assay and the BD ProbeTec assay.
