Five commercial kit systems for the rapid identification of Neisseria gonorrhoeae were evaluated. The systems were tested with various pathogenic and saprophytic Neisseria and Branhamella strains having reactions typical for their individual species. Three systems (RIM-N, quadFERM, and RapID NH) were found to be 100% sensitive and specific.
