LDMS comes with two pre-defined templates for the NASBA assay.

Template Number of Controls Expected Values
NASBA HIV RNA QT 4 0 / 15,000 / 150,000 / 1.5e+006 (i.e. 1,500,000)
NASBA - No Negative Control 3 15,000 / 150,000 / 1.5e+006 (i.e. 1,500,000)

The recommended maximum number of plates for the NASBA assay is three. If you attempt to add more than three plates, LDMS will prompt you with a warning message. LDMS will not automatically move or add controls when specimens are added beyond the first plate.
