To assess interlaboratory variability in qualitative and quantitative cytomegalovirus (CMV) viral load (VL) testing, we distributed a panel of samples to 33 laboratories in the USA, Canada and Europe who performed testing using commercial reagents (n = 17) or laboratory-developed assays (n = 18). The panel included two negatives, seven samples constructed from purified CMV nucleocapsids in plasma (2.0-6.0 log(10) copies/mL) and three clinical plasma samples. Interlaboratory variation was… CONTINUE READING
