Table 1 Summary of results for the evaluation of the ProPneumo-1 multiplex real-time PCR assay

From: Verification of the ProPneumo-1 assay for the simultaneous detection of Mycoplasma pneumoniae and Chlamydophila pneumoniae in clinical respiratory specimens

  C. pneumoniae M. pneumoniae
  Monoplex ProPneumo-1 Culture ProPneumo-1
Positive specimens 11 14 42 41
Negative specimens 47 43 46 48
Total 58 57 88 89
  1. Note: The ProPneumo-1 assay detected 3 positive M. pneumoniae specimens in the C. pneumoniae-negative pool and 2 positive C. pneumoniae specimens in the M. pneumoniae-negative pool. Accordingly, 57 and 89 specimens were resolved for C. pneumoniae and M. pneumoniae, respectively by the ProPneumo-1 assay compared to 58 and 88 by the Monoplex assay and culture, respectively. The total number of specimens tested remains 146.
