From: Clinical impact of a commercially available multiplex PCR system for rapid detection of pathogens in patients with presumed sepsis

  BC positive BC negative Total SF
SF positive 14 13 27
SF negative 9* 63 73
Total BC 23 77 100 #
  1. * Two samples yielded two different pathogens by BC but just one by SF
  2. # One sample yielding different species comparing SF with BC not included in table.
