Use of a single swab in multi-microbe or flex trans transport medium for detection of Chlamydia trachomatis by Roche Amplicor PCR and culture in specimens from two different patient populations.

By C K Fong, J Falcone and M L Landry

Abstract

The Roche Amplicor PCR increased the detection of Chlamydia trachomatis compared with culture in promptly processed clinical specimens from a local clinic (100 and 86.5%, respectively) and in samples with delayed processing transported from distant facilities (100 and 72.7%, respectively). A single swab collected in culture transport medium was used. Two media, Multi-Microbe and Flex Trans, were tested and found to be equally acceptable
