The COBAS Amplicor CMV Monitor test (Roche Diagnostics), an automated polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for the quantification of cytomegalovirus (CMV) DNA in plasma samples, was evaluated in a routine diagnostic laboratory. Using cell culture-derived CMV and CMV-negative human plasma, the linear detection range of the assay as well as its intra-and inter-assay variabilities were assessed. The study design allowed distinguishing variations in results related to amplification and detection… CONTINUE READING
