The Wassermann, Kahn and VDRL reactions are usually done routinely. A diagnosis based sorely on STS reaction is not recommended, although all of the three reactions are positive, moreover a diagnosis based only on one positive STS reaction is of small significant without clinical diagnosis and history of suspected syphilis. Non-specific STS is better for routine testing and for screening, as it is more sensitive while specific STS is better for solving diagnostic problems.
