Evaluation of Sigma Transwab ® in Liquid Amies Transport Medium for Neisseria gonorrhoeae Culture
Recovery of Neisseria gonorrhoea was evaluated with two approaches: Amies transport medium following culture on VCAT plates against traditional near patient inoculation of specimens directly to Vancomycin, Colistin sulphate, Amphotericin B, Trimethoprim (VCAT) agar culture plates. Sensitivities and specifities were 90% and 100% (transport medium) and (72% and 100% (direct culture), Sigma Transwab® in liquid Amies transport medium provides a superior recovery method for Neisseria gonorrhoeae from clinical material. This methodology will not only provide significant quality improvements but also service provision improvements for the patients.
Evaluation of illumigene® Mycoplasma Direct DNA amplification assay
illumigene® Mycoplasma Direct -testiä verrattiin aikaisempaan illumigene® Mycoplasma -testiin, joka vaatii DNA:n ekstraktion. Suoraan tikkunäytteestä tehtävä uusi illumigene® Mycoplasma Direct on yhtä luotettava kuin työläämpi predikaattitesti ja se antaa tulokset alle tunnissa.
Evaluation of Sigma Transwab® in Liquid Amies Transport Medium for Neisseria gonorrhoeae Culture
The use of Sigma Transwab® in liquid Amies transport medium provides a superior recovery method for Neisseria gonorrhoeae from clinical material which is not only a quality improvement but also a service improvement for the patient, allowing for a more efficient management of the process. The outcome of this study was a change in procedure at all Sexual health clinics. NHS Fife adopted the use of Sigma Transwab® in liquid Amies transport medium to obtain the relevant anatomical samples for transportation to the Microbiology laboratory for culture and identification of Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
