Leptospira, IgM, Serum

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

The GenBio IgM ImmunoDOT Leptosirosis test utilizes an enzyme-linked immunoassay (EIA) dot technique for the detection of IgM antibodies. Leptospira biflexa, serovar Patoc 1 strain antigens are dispensed as discrete dots onto a solid membrane. After adding the test specimen to a reaction cuvette, an assay strip is inserted, allowing patient antibodies reactive with the test antigens to bind to the strip's solid support member. Alkaline phosphatase conjugated goat antihuman IgM antibodies are allowed to react with bound patient antibodies. Finally, the strip is transferred to an enzyme substrate reagent, which reacts with bound alkaline phosphatase to produce an easily seen, distinct spot.(Package insert: ImmunoDOT Leptospira IgM.

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, 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 5 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
