BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES A collaborative study, involving 26 laboratories from 14 countries, was carried out in order to establish a World Health Organization (WHO) International Standard for human parvovirus B19 (B19) DNA nucleic acid amplification techniques (NAT). MATERIALS AND METHODS Four samples: AA, BB (which were lyophilized), CC and DD (which were liquid preparations) were analysed using several different NAT assays. The mean B19 DNA content of each sample was determined for each… CONTINUE READING
