Clinical and analytical evaluation of the Alinity m HR HPV assay within the VALGENT-3 framework

Alinity m, RealTime, and cobas, and the Linear Array (Roche) was used for more detailed genotyping concordance. In the total study population, the relative sensitivity and specificity for CIN2 + and CIN3 ...

The 2021 WHO catalogue of complex mutations associated with drug resistance: A genotypic analysis.

rifampicin, isoniazid, ethambutol, fluoroquinolones, and streptomycin, the mutations’ pooled sensitivity was >80%. Specificity was over 95% for all drugs except ethionamide (91·4%), moxifloxacin (91·6%) and ...

Importance of anti-SARS-CoV-2 assay antigenic composition as revealed by the results of the Belgian external quality assessment (EQA) scheme.

Immunoglobulin A Immunoglobulin G Immunoglobulin M Male Phosphoproteins SARS-CoV-2 Sensitivity and Specificity Spike Glycoprotein, Coronavirus Abstract: We report on sample IS /17575 since it generated highly ...

No molecular detection of tick-borne pathogens in the blood of patients with erythema migrans in Belgium

to current methodologies. This study underscores the possibility of false-positive PCR results and the necessity for the development of multiple independent tools for the sensitive and specific ...

Nursing home residents with suspected urinary tract infections: a diagnostic accuracy study

The combined nitrite and leucocyte esterase urine dipstick test (one or both positive) had a 96.0% negative predictive value (95% CI: 80.5-99.3%). The sensitivity of a positive CRP test (≥ 5 mg/L) was ...

Measuring disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) due to COVID-19 in Scotland, 2020

calculated DALY s based on the COVID-19 consensus model and methods outlined by the European Burden of Disease Network. DALY s were presented as a range, using a sensitivity analysis based on Years of Life ...

Strategy and Performance Evaluation of Low-Frequency Variant Calling for SARS-CoV-2 Using Targeted Deep Illumina Sequencing

metagenomics approach and Illumina sequencing. As anticipated, higher variation and lower sensitivity were observed at lower coverages and allelic frequencies. We found that detection of all low-frequency ...

In Vivo Kinetics and Biotransformation of Aflatoxin B1 in Dairy Cows Based on the Establishment of a Reliable UHPLC-MS/MS MethodDataSheet1.docx

developed and successfully validated by the determination of linearity (R2  ≥ 0.990), sensitivity (lower limit of quantification, 0.1–0.2 ng ml−1), recovery (79.5–111.2%), and precision relative standard ...

Retrospective evaluation of routine whole genome sequencing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis at the Belgian National Reference Center, 2019.

MTB strains analyzed in 2019 (n = 306). RESULTS: In all cases, the WGS-based procedure was able to identify correctly the MTB species. Compared to MGIT drug susceptibility testing (DST), the sensitivity ...
