Colette Matysiak's manuscript on the Abbott Alinity m STI test published in Practical Laboratory Medicine
Colette was busy during her 3-month clinical microbiology rotation at BIDMC prior to moving on to a CPEP fellowship at UCLA. Here manuscript validating the performance of the Abbott Alinity m STI test (a quadriplex assay simultaneously detecting Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Trichomonas vaginalis, and Mycoplasma genitalium inclusive of sampling and internal controls) was recently published in Practical Laboratory Medicine. We are delighted to be part of the early launch of several clinical microbiology careers and wish Dr. Matysiak well in her fellowship training and beyond!
