Evaluation of three commercial latex agglutination kits and a commercial enzyme immunoassay for the detection of cryptococcal antigen



Evaluation of three commercial latex agglutination kits and a commercial enzyme immunoassay for the detection of cryptococcal antigen



Medical Mycology 47(3): 336-338



We compared the performance of the Meridian CALAS, Wampole Crypto-LA, Murex Cryptococcus latex agglutination assay, and the Meridian Premier EIA for the detection of cryptococcal antigen in serum and CSF. The assays demonstrated similar performance characteristics based on concordance values > or = 93% but important differences were noted in endpoint titers.
