Pooling of Clinical Specimens Prior to testing for Chlamydia trachomatis by PCR Is Accurate and Cost Saving
The accuracy and cost savings of pooling specimens prior to testing for Chlamydia trachomatis by PCR were evaluated with genital and urine specimens (n = 2,600). There was a 60% reduction in tests without significant loss of accuracy. The efficiency of pooling vaginal swabs is demonstrated for the first time.
