The use of CFU calibrators facilitates comparison of different methods' sensitivities because the standardization of bacterial nucleic acid amplification techniques, common for viral nucleic acid amplification techniques, is required to detect bacterial contamination of blood products, as Montag (22) and Saldanha (32) have previously proposed.

Blood samples were collected from 26 cadavers in London and the surrounding area as part of a study to investigate the inhibition of nucleic acid amplification techniques for bloodborne viruses in tissue samples (6).
The patented technology was invented in the mid-1980's and relates to pathogen detection methods that achieve high clinical sensitivity by coupling Vysis' reversible target capture technology with enzymatic nucleic acid amplification techniques, such as the polymerase chain reaction, Q-beta replicase, and transcription mediated amplification.
Nucleic acid amplification techniques have similar limitations.
