Interpretation Provides information to assist in interpretation of the test results

This assay detects antibodies against recombinant Hantavirus antigens of both old world and new world Hantavirus types. The immune response to Hantavirus infection is not type-specific, and thus cross-reactivity may occur. All Hantavirus IgM-positive samples from US residents will be sent to a Public Health Laboratory for Sin Nombre Virus (SNV)-specific IgM testing. Samples that are Hantavirus IgG positive but IgM negative will not be subjected to further type-specific testing, since the lack of IgM rules out acute infection.
