Abstract

The CMV-vue antigenemia assay was evaluated by using mixed-leukocyte (ML) blood fractions. Of 234 ML fractions studied, 32 (14%), 23 (10%), and 20 (8.5%) were positive in the CMV-vue assay and conventional and shell vial cultures, respectively. The CMV-vue assay was more sensitive than shell vial cultures for rapid detection of cytomegalovirus. ML fractions are appropriate specimens for the cytomegalovirus antigenemia assay.
