Test Number Components Reference Interval
 Candida Antibody, IgG  
 
0.89 EV or less Negative -​ No significant level of detectable Candida albicans antibody.
0.90-​0.99 EV Equivocal -​ Questionable presence of antibodies. Repeat testing in 10-​14 days may be helpful.
1.00 EV or greater Positive -​ Antibody to Candida albicans detected, which may indicate a current or past infection.
 Candida Antibody, IgM  
 
0.89 EV or less Negative -​ No significant level of detectable Candida albicans antibody.
0.90-​0.99 EV Equivocal -​ Questionable presence of antibodies. Repeat testing in 10-​14 days may be helpful.
1.00 EV or greater Positive -​ Antibody to Candida albicans detected, which may indicate a current or past infection.
 Candida Antibody, IgA  
 
0.89 EV or less Negative -​ No significant level of detectable Candida albicans antibody.
0.90-​0.99 EV Equivocal -​ Questionable presence of antibodies. Repeat testing in 10-​14 days may be helpful.
1.00 EV or greater Positive -​ Antibody to Candida albicans detected, which may indicate a current or past infection.
Interpretive Data
The best evidence for current infection is a significant change on two appropriately timed specimens where both tests are done in the same laboratory at the same time. However, low levels of IgM antibodies may occasionally persist for more than 12 months post-infection.
