Abstract

This study evaluated an enzyme immunoassay, a multiplex bead immunoassay (MBIA), and the anticomplement immunofluorescence (ACIF) test for detecting varicella-zoster virus IgG antibodies in sera from medical center students and employees. The agreement between methods was ≥95%. The MBIA was less sensitive than was the ACIF test, with a negative predictive value of 66.7%.
