Title Performance characteristics of six IMMULITE 2000 TORCH assays
Date 2006-01-04
Description TORCH is an acronym for Toxoplasma gondii (Toxo), other microorganisms (like syphilis), rubella (RV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), and herpesviruses (HSV) that are associated with congenital abnormalities during maternal infection. Prenatal testing for antibodies against these agents is one tool for prevention. Automated random access analyzers like the IMMULITE 2000 are useful for TORCH testing. We evaluated linearity, imprecision, and comparison to other commercially available methods of six IMMULITE 2000 TORCH assays including Toxo IgG, Toxo IgM, RV IgG, RV IgM, CMV IgG, and HSV IgG.
