Do not use for diagnosis of Epstein-Barr virus infectious mononucleosis. May aid in the detection and prognosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay/Semi-Quantitative Chemiluminescent Immunoassay
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: 0.5 mL) Parallel testing is preferred and convalescent specimens must be received within 30 days from receipt of the acute specimens.
Contaminated, heat-inactivated, or grossly hemolyzed specimens.
Label specimens plainly as acute or convalescent.
After separation from cells: Ambient: 48 hours; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: 1 year (Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles).
