The detection of Mycoplasma genitalium was evaluated on 1,080 urine samples by the use of a Panther instrument. Overall sensitivity,specificity, positive predictive values, and negative predictive values were 100%, 99.4%, 93.6%, and 100%, respectively.Detection of M. genitalium by the use of the Panther transcription-mediated amplification assay offers a simple, accurate, and sensitive platform for diagnostic laboratories.
