Abstract :

Chlamydia trachomatis/Neisseria gonorrhoeae assay performance in males is typically determined using post-swab urine, though preswab urine is used in practice. We collected swabs and urine from men and used the Cepheid Xpert[R] CT/NG sample adequacy control to determine the effect of swab collection on urine cellular content. No difference was observed.
