Nucleic acid amplification tests such as the BDProbeTec ET (BDPT) system are more prone to reproducibility problems than are antigen detection tests and culture. A repeat testing algorithm for all samples with method other than acceleration (MOTA) scores greater than or equal to the cutoff value (2000) was developed for the BDPT system and applied in a clinical laboratory setting. All positive samples were retested, and if the result of the second test was below the cutoff value, a third test… CONTINUE READING
