This report is intended for use in clinical monitoring or management of patients; it is not intended for use in medico-legal applications. In general, this assay should not be used to assess therapeutic success or failure, since nucleic acids from these organisms may persist for 3 weeks or more following antimicrobial therapy. The presence of blood is not expected to interfere with this assay.
