Ambient: Unacceptable; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: 2 weeks (avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles)  
Reference Interval

Interpretive Data
Less than 3.2 ng/mL=Detected (below the limit of quantification)
3.2-20.0 ng/mL=Detected
Greater than 20.0 ng/mL=Detected (above the limit of quantification)

The quantitative range of this assay is 3.2-20.0 ng/mL. Antigen concentrations between 0.4-3.1 or>20.0 ng/mL fall outside the linear range of the assay and cannot be accurately quantified.

This EIA test should be used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures, including microbiological culture, histological examination of biopsy samples, and/or radiographic evidence, to aid in the diagnosis of histoplasmosis.
