Nonculture methods now available, such as counterimmunoelectrophoresis (CIE) and coagglutination, have failed to show uniform diagnostic sensitivity or specificity even when applied to specimens collected from patients with culture-confirmed bacteremic pneumococcal pneumonia [5,6] (1) The lack of sensitive nonculture-based methods and the limitations of culture often result in only presumptive diagnoses of pneumococcal pneumonia [7].
Other developments include the use of the limulus assay lysate test for endotoxins; measurement of bacterial ATP by bioluminescence; rapid detection of bacterial antigens, toxins, and antibodies by coagglutination techniques and enzyme immunoassay; and rapid identification of bacteria and its products by high-pressure liquid chromatography and head-space chromatography.
