In brief, in a single well of a 96-well plate, the viral cDNAs were amplified by PCR, targetspecific extension of tagged primers, capture of the target-specific products to labeled microspheres, and readout of the fluorescent signal on each microsphere using a multiplex microbead reading system. The authors concluded that this assay showed an overall sensitivity of 99% and specificity of 87% compared with conventional identification techniques, that is, real-time PCR and routine viral culture. Using the Luminex xTAG respiratory viral panel for the detection of 20 respiratory virus targets, it has been reported that it compared favorably with the real-time nucleic acid amplification tests for the individual viruses with the exception of lower sensitivity for detection of adenovirus (60).
