Abstract

Abstract We compared the TQS and Elisa tests for the evaluation of tetanus antitoxin. TQS is a rapid, easy, specific and sensitive method, giving reliable results in twenty minutes: the results are correlated with those obtained by Elisa. The TQS test should be used as a guide in the prevention of tetanus in injured patients in the emergency units. Following its commercial release by the InGen laboratory, we have tested its reliability towards the patients coming to the emergency department of the Delafontaine hospital Saint-Denis (93).
