Detect neutralizing antibodies to poliovirus (types 1 and 3).
Semi-Quantitative Serum Neutralization
Serum Separator Tube (SST) or Plain Red.
Separate from cells ASAP or within 2 hours of collection. Transfer 1 mL serum to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.2 mL)
Plasma. Contaminated, hemolyzed, or severely lipemic specimens.
After separation from cells: Ambient: 48 hours; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: 1 year (avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles)
|Less than 1:10||No detectable poliovirus antibodies.|
|1:10 or greater||Antibody to poliovirus detected, which may represent prior immunization or current or past infection.|
The presence of neutralizing antibodies against poliovirus implies immunity. The serum neutralization test is serotype specific. Antibodies against one type does not indicate immunity against the other type.
Reference interval applies to Poliovirus Antibodies Types 1 and 3.
