abstract

  • Use of a new collection kit for vaginal and cervical sampling was reported as easy by the majority of 692 women and not uncomfortable (by 87.4% of those ≥ 25 years old and 78.8% of those <25 years old). By Aptima testing, patient- and physician-collected samples agreed strongly for Chlamydia trachomatis (99.6% to 99.3%; κ = 0.93 to 0.89) and T. vaginalis (99.6% to 98.9%; κ = 0.97 to 0.78).
