Abstract

We evaluated the Immuno-1 (Bayer Diagnostics, Tarrytown, New York, USA) and IMx (Abbott Laboratories, Chicago, Illinois, USA) toxoplasma IgG assays in 298 (223 fresh in-house prenatal + 75 supplied by Bayer) specimens over 15 days. Discordant results were resolved by indirect fluorescence assay (Gull Laboratories, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA). The performance of Immuno-1 assay was found to be comparable to the IMx assay. Immuno-1, being a random access analyzer with minimum hands-on time requirements may have an advantage in the overall laboratory efficiency.
