Because GPLN is often asked how kits form one vendor compare to those of another, the company decided to perform specificity studies on certain kits from a number of suppliers of ELISA kits. This information enables the Laboratory to choose kits that best fit the needs of its customers. Customers are concerned when screening tests provided positive results and confirmatory tests, yield negative results. Sometimes this is due to an early infection which the confirmatory test does not detect, but many times it is due to a lack of specificity of the ELISA test. This study helps define the kits with the highest level of specificity.
