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, Bordier Affinity Products SA, Batiment Biokema, Chatanerie 2, CH-1023 Crissier, Switzerland, January 2018)

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

Monday, Wednesday, Friday; 2 p.m.

Analytic Time Defines the amount of time it takes the laboratory to setup and perform the test. This is defined in number of days. The shortest interval of time expressed is "same day/1 day," which means the results may be available the same day that the sample is received in the testing laboratory. One day means results are available 1 day after the sample is received in the laboratory.

Same day/1 day

Maximum Laboratory Time Defines the maximum time from specimen receipt at Mayo Clinic Laboratories until the release of the test result

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
