We compared two commercial PCR assays, the Prodesse ProGastro CD assay and the BD GeneOhm Cdiff assay, with a laboratory-developed Clostridium difficile toxin PCR assay with previously established performance characteristics. Results of all methods were in agreement for 333 (96%) of 346 stool specimens. No significant difference in performance among the assays was found (P values, >0.05).
