Enzyme immunoassays for the detection of chlamydial antigens are commonly used to diagnose Chlamydia trachomatis infection. As is true for all nonculture methods, the specificities of these tests are a concern. A confirmatory blocking assay (Abbott Laboratories, North Chicago, Ill.) was evaluated at four sexually transmitted disease test sites. This assay is designed to confirm true-positive Chlamydiazyme (CZ) specimens and to identify false-positive CZ reactions caused by cross-reacting… CONTINUE READING
