Analysis of CMV status from buccal swabs

CMV status
Non-invasive oral sampling for CMV IgG determination creates new opportunities and shortens the process between donor selection and transplantation. We derive CMV serostatus from dried swabs with good sensitivity and specificity. Therefore, this provides a non-invasive alternative to plasma-based CMV monitoring for non-diagnostic purposes such as donor screening in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or population studies.
