Simultaneous Detection of Seven Enteric Viruses Associated with Acute Gastroenteritis by a Multiplexed Luminex-based Assay
Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 04/27/2012
Liu Y et al. – Compared to conventional PCR, the Luminex–based assay yielded greater than 75% sensitivity and 97% specificity for each virus, and the kappa correlation for detection of all viruses ranged from 0.75 to 1.00. In conclusion, this multiplexed Luminex–based assay provides a potentially rapid, high–throughout, and maneuverable diagnostic tool for major viral pathogens associated with gastroenteritis.
