Abstract

For rubella virus immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgM detection, Vidia assays were compared to Vidas, AxSYM, and Liaison assays with 419 serum samples. Only Vidia produced a sensitivity of 100% for IgG and IgM. Vidia specificities were 98.4% for IgG and 99.8% for IgM, versus Vidas specificities of 100 and 99.3%. Vidia IgG and IgM assays performed equally well.
