Test Overview
Test Methodology

ELISA

Test Usage

Systemic candidiasis is often characterized by markedly elevated levels of Candida-specific antibodies.

Reference Range *

IgA: <1.0; IgG: <1.0; IgM: <1.0.

* Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results.

Test Limitations

Interpretation of Candida antibody results is complicated by detection of these antibodies in healthy individuals, and blunted antibody responses in immunocompromised patients. Fungus Culture is recommended as a more sensitive and specific test for Candidiasis.
