Not recommended for diagnosing congenital infections in newborns; tests should be selected individually to target the most likely infectious agents.
Semi-Quantitative Chemiluminescent Immunoassay/Semi-Quantitative Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay
Serum Separator Tube (SST).
Allow specimen to clot completely at room temperature. Separate from cells ASAP or within 2 hours of collection. Transfer 2 mL serum to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 1 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."
After separation from cells: Ambient: 48 hours; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: 1 year (avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles)
