Test ID: TXMGP    
Toxoplasma gondii Antibody, IgM and IgG (Separate Determinations), Serum

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Determining whether a patient has had previous exposure to or recent infection with Toxoplasma gondii

Highlights

Detection of IgM-class antibodies to Toxoplasma gondii may be useful as a screen for recent infection with Toxoplasma gondii.

 

Per the FDA, IgM-positive results by a screening assay should be confirmed, for example by a Toxoplasma reference laboratory.

 

A single negative result by this assay does not rule-out toxoplasmosis as the specimen may have been collected too early following infection, prior to development of detectable antibodies.

 

A single IgG-positive result is indicative of exposure to Toxoplasma gondii at some time in the past.
