Strongyloides Antibody, IgG, Serum

Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

The Bordier Strongyloides ratti IgG ELISA is an enzymatically amplified sandwich-type immunoassay. After a blocking step, diluted serum and controls are incubated in antigen-coated microtiter wells, then washed and incubated with antihuman-IgG antibody labeled with protein A-alkaline phosphatase conjugate. After a washing step, the wells are incubated with phosphatase substrate. The reaction is halted by potassium phosphate stopping solution and the degree of enzymatic turnover is determined by absorbance measured at 405 nanometers with a reference filter of 590 to 650 nm.(Package insert: Strongyloides Ratti Enzyme immunoassay for the diagnosis of human Strongyloidosis.

Day(s) Performed Outlines the days the test is performed. This field reflects the day that the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means that assays are performed multiple times during the day.

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

Report Available The interval of time (receipt of sample at Mayo Clinic Laboratories to results available) taking into account standard setup days and weekends. The first day is the time that it typically takes for a result to be available. The last day is the time it might take, accounting for any necessary repeated testing.

Same day/1 to 4 days

Specimen Retention Time Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded

14 days

Performing Laboratory Location Indicates the location of the laboratory that performs the test
