Not recommended for the diagnosis of fungal infection. Refer to individual fungus-specific testing according to patient exposure: Coccidioides Antibodies Panel, Serum (0050588); Aspergillus Antibodies by Complement Fixation and Immunodiffusion, Serum (0050101); Histoplasma Antibodies by Complement Fixation and Immunodiffusion, Serum (0050627); or Blastomyces dermatitidis Antibodies by Immunoassay with Reflex to Immunodiffusion, Serum (3000236).
New York DOH Approval Status
Serum separator tube (SST)
Separate serum from cells ASAP or within 2 hours of collection. Transfer 1 mL serum to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.4 mL) Parallel testing is preferred and convalescent specimens must be received within 30 days from receipt of the acute specimens. Mark specimens plainly as "acute" or "convalescent."
Contaminated, hemolyzed, or severely lipemic specimens.
After separation from cells: Ambient: 48 hours; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: 1 year (avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles)
