Abstract

Background: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of the new BD FACS Count System compared to the standard BD FACS Count system for count of lymphocytes TCD4.
Methods: It was a comparative study conducted in Centre MURAZ research institute. The New BD FACS Count System dedicated to enumerate absolute and percentage of TCD4+ was compared to the standard BD FACS Count System dedicated to enumerate only absolute number of TCD4+, TCD8+, TCD3+ and the CD4/CD8 ratio. Results were analyzed by Meth Val software.
Results: The New BD FACS Count System compared favorably with the BD FACS Count System for absolute TCD4+, resulting in an overall correlation coefficient of 0.99 for the patients evaluated.
Conclusion: The New BD FACS Count System is simple to perform as the old system and was an excellent alternative method to manage adults HIV in resource limited settings.
