Abstract

We report here the results of the diagnostic performances of Vitros Syphilis TPA (a chemiluminescence treponemal assay) compared with those of two treponemal enzyme immunoassays and of traditional versus reverse syphilis algorithms. Ease of use, automation, and high throughput make the Vitros Syphilis TPA assay a good choice for syphilis screening in high-volume laboratories.
