Abstract

Of 109 blood samples tested for cytomegalovirus (CMV) antigenemia, 18 (16.5%) were positive. CMV Brite detected 13 and CMV Brite Turbo detected 16 of the 18 positives. There was no significant difference in the number of positive cells detected per sample. The seven discrepant samples contained a median of only one positive cell.
