The purely hybridization-based approach, without nucleic acid amplification, makes the signal intensity much more reliably linear with regard to target material than amplified methods.
Regarding screening for gonorrhea and chlamydia, the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) states that newer tests, including nucleic acid amplification tests of urine, have improved sensitivity and comparable specificity when compared with cervical culture.
The test is marketed as an EU CE-IVD product and is the first nucleic acid amplification test to deliver trichomoniasis results for male urine samples (Cepheid TV Package Insert).
Because of this variation, published case series from individual centers demonstrating the clinical utility of quantitative nucleic acid amplification tests for many viruses are not widely applicable.
Working reagents for nucleic acid amplification techniques from DNA Technology of Brazil were used to establish the analytical sensitivity of the multiplex assay.
Implementing the fully automated NAAT (nucleic acid amplification test) could result in a three-fold increase in the diagnosis of patients with drug-resistant TB and doubling in the number of HIV-associated TB cases in areas with a high TB and HIV incidence.
WHO's endorsement of the rapid test, which is a fully automated NAAT (nucleic acid amplification test) follows 18 months of rigorous assessment of its field effectiveness in the early diagnosis of TB, as well as multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) and TB complicated by HIV infection, which are more difficult to diagnose.
The test will use the firm's nucleic acid amplification and detection technology to detect and analyse a number of targets at the same time.
The newly granted patents relate to automated sample preparation and target nucleic acid amplification, as well as closed-tube sampling.
Guidelines for the use of nucleic acid amplification (NAA) tests for the diagnosis of tuberculosis (TB) were published in 1996 (1) and updated in 2000 (2).
Among the nine categories of analytical technique cited by IBO in its forecast issue (see IBO 1/15/08), separation instrumentation (initial system, aftermarket, and service sales for HPLC, GC, ion chromatography, low pressure LC, capillary electrophoresis and other techniques) and life science instrumentation (initial systems, aftermarket and service sales for sequencers, synthesizers, nucleic acid amplification, electrophoresis, microarrays, informatics, molecular biology preparation kits, biosensors, cell analysis and animal imaging) are expected to experience the fastest growth this year and next.
