Specimen Stability Information
Provides a description of the temperatures required to transport a specimen to the performing laboratory, alternate acceptable temperatures are also included
Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.
Human Herpesvirus 7 (HHV-7), a close relative of HHV-6, is found in >85% of the population, with transmission occurring in early childhood. Like HHV-6, HHV-7 is a cause of exanthem subitum (roseola infantum). Due to the ubiquitous nature of HHV-7 infection, >80% of individuals in the general population exhibit HHV-7 IgG titers >or=1:20; however, only 5% of these individuals exhibit titers >1:320. Thus, HHV-7 IgG titers > 1:320 are suggestive of recent HHV-7 infection. Detection of HHV-7 specific IgM is also indicative of recent infection.
