Test Overview

Test Methodology

Enzyme Immunoassay (EIA)

Test Usage

The presence of IgM class antibodies indicates recent infection. The presence of IgG antibodies only is indicative of past exposure. Both IgG and IgM may be present at or soon after onset of illness and reach peak titers within 30 days. Because IgG antibody may persist for years, diagnosis of acute infection is made by the detection of IgM antibodies.

Reference Range

IgG:Negative; IgM: Negative

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