Cytospin-enhanced direct immunofluorescence assay versus cell culture for detection of herpes simplex virus in clinical specimens.

The reliability of a cytospin-enhanced direct immunofluorescence assay (DFA), using Syva Micro Trak monoclonal antibodies, for detection of herpes simplex virus (HSV) was evaluated by comparing results with those of conventional cell culture. Of 250 clinical specimens, 64 were positive for HSV by cell culture, and 22 were positive by cytospin-enhanced DFA, two of which were negative by culture. The sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values for cytospin-enhanced DFA were 31.25, 98.9, 90.9, and 80.7%, respectively. Cytospin-enhanced DFA is not an acceptable alternative to cell culture for detection of HSV.[1]
