Table 1 Results of BC and PCR-ST without clinical interpretation

From: A prospective multicenter evaluation of direct molecular detection of blood stream infection from a clinical perspective

  BC positive BC negative Total
PCR-ST positive 11 + 3a 33 47
PCR-ST negative 29 160 189
Total 43 193 236
  1. Abbreviations: BC blood culture, PCR-ST polymerase chain reaction with SepsiTest™
  2. aThree samples were positive in both BC and PCR-ST, however the microorganisms detected were different. For calculating sensitivity and specificity of PCR-ST compared to BC only concordant results were included
