New erythrocyte lysis and leukocyte stabilization reagents (Streck Laboratories, Inc.) were tested in the cytomegalovirus pp65 antigenemia assay, to determine if whole-blood processing time could be delayed to 24 h postdraw. The combination of these reagents gave results comparable to those for patient samples processed immediately after blood draw.
