Not an optimal reflex test. Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) with Reflex to Titer and TP-PA Confirmation (0050478) is preferred.
Semi-Quantitative Charcoal Agglutination/Semi-Quantitative Indirect Fluorescent Antibody
Serum separator tube.
Separate serum from cells ASAP or within 2 hours of collection. Transfer 1mL serum to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.4 mL) Avoid freezing if possible.
CSF or plasma. Contaminated, hemolyzed, or severely lipemic specimens.
After separation from cells: Ambient: 48 hours; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: 1 year
|Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR)||Effective May 21, 2012
RPR (+) = Reactive
RPR (-) = Nonreactive
|Rapid Plasma Reagin (RPR) Titer||< 1:1|
|0050477||Treponema pallidum Antibody, IgG by IFA (FTA-ABS), Serum||Nonreactive|
|0050777||Treponema pallidum Antibody by TP-PA||Nonreactive|
No compliance statements are in use for this test.
This panel is for clients in states where automatic confirmation using a treponemal test is required for all reactive RPR tests.
If RPR is reactive, then a titer to endpoint and FTA-ABS confirmation will be added. Additional charges apply.
