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 interval: None Detected

 

Reportable Range: Positive Results reported in ng/mL from 0.20 ng/mL to 20.00 ng/mL

 

Positive Results above 20.00 ng/mL are reported as “Above the Limit of Quantification”.

 

Cautions
Discusses conditions that may cause diagnostic confusion, including improper specimen collection and handling, inappropriate test selection, and interfering substances

Interfering Substances & Cross-Reactivities:

Sputolysin, sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide treatment degrade the analyte detected in the assay. Cross-reactions are seen with blastomycosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, penicilliosis, less frequently in coccidioidomycosis, rarely in aspergillosis, and possibly sporotrichosis.
