In this study, the retest standard was BD MAX™ SARS-CoV-2 single-gene positivity with the reference RLU value. The retest standard not only saves reagent costs incurred in repeated testing, but also reduces the time spent on retesting and reporting, and accelerates the epidemic adjustment time and turnover rate of dedicated wards, thereby improving the efficiency of SARS-CoV-2 detection and clinical decision-making. 65High-Throughput and Automated Detection of HLA-B*27 Using the LabTurboTM AIO SystemBiomedicines2023Yung-Che Chou, Tze-Kiong ErIn summary, the LabTurboTM AIO system is a fast and reliable technique for HLA-B*27 detection during routine laboratory testing.
