Reference Values
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.

Reference Range:

IgG:     <0.90

IgM:     <0.80

 

INTERPRETIVE CRITERIA:

 

     IgG:

     <0.90               Antibody not detected

     0.9-1.09           Equivocal

     >or=1.10          Antibody detected

 

     IgM:

     <0.80               Antibody not detected

     0.80-0.99          Equivocal

Interpretation
Provides information to assist in interpretation of the test results

Diagnosis of central nervous system infections can be accomplished by demonstrating the presence of intrathecally-produced specific antibody. Interpreting results may be complicated by low antibody levels found in CSF, passive transfer of antibody from blood and contamination via bloody taps. The interpretation of CSF results must consider CSF-serum antibody ratios to the infectious agent.

PDF Report
Indicates whether the report includes an additional document with charts, images or other enriched information

No

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.

Tuesday, 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.

1 to 7 days

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

Quest Diagnostics Infectious Disease
