2-5) In a prospective study of 933 evaluable women, the Aptima test detected trichomonas RNA by transcription-mediated amplification
with a clinical sensitivity of 95.
A transcription-mediated amplification
(TMA) assay has been developed (9,10) which uses analyte-specific reagents (ASRs) for M.
A prototype CHIKV transcription-mediated amplification
(TMA) assay was used to screen blood donors from Puerto Rico during the peak of the 2014 Caribbean epidemic (Table).
Screening of male patients for Trichomonas vaginalis with transcription-mediated amplification
in a community with a high prevalence of sexually transmitted infection.
NASBA and transcription-mediated amplification
(TMA), often referred to collectively as transcription-based amplification methods, are both isothermal RNA amplification methods modeled after retroviral replication (13, 14).
The intensive and time-consuming reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction PCA3 urine test has been translated successfully into the fast and easy transcription-mediated amplification
(TMA)-based PCA3 test.
The performance of a lab-developed transcription-mediated amplification
(TMA) nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) for TV and wet mount for the diagnosis of TV infections has been compared side by side in several studies.
Although there are many molecular diagnostic methodologies available for clinical use including nucleic acid sequence based amplification (NASBA), transcription-mediated amplification
(TMA), branched DNA (bDNA), hybrid capture, and cycling probe technology (7) (all amplification techniques) as well as nucleic acid hybridization techniques, genotyping assays, and DNA probes, this series focuses on the most common molecular methodologies, instrumentation, and widely used assays in not only the clinical microbiology laboratories but the public health laboratory as well.
The residual urine samples from routine pregnancy testing were evaluated for chlamydia and gonorrhea with GenProbe's transcription-mediated amplification
testing, while testing for T.
HIV-1 HCV NAT using Transcription-Mediated Amplification
(HIV-1/HCV NAT via TMA) or HIV DNA using Polymerase Chain Reaction (HIV DNA by PCR)
genitalium infection was determined by either polymerase chain reaction or transcription-mediated amplification
