Fungal Antibodies with Reflex to Blastomyces dermatitidis Antibodies by Immunodiffusion, CSF
Not recommended for the diagnosis of fungal infection of the central nervous system. Refer to individual fungal antibody tests, as relevant to patient exposure(s).
Semi-Quantitative Complement Fixation/Semi-Quantitative Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay/Qualitative Immunodiffusion
Transfer 1 mL CSF to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.35 mL)
Other body fluids. Contaminated, hemolyzed, xanthochromic, or severely lipemic specimens.
Ambient: 48 hours; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: 1 year (avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles)
|Aspergillus Antibody, CSF (CF)||Less than 1:2|
|3000231||Blastomyces dermatitidis Antibodies by EIA with Reflex to Immunodiffusion, CSF||
|3000059||Coccidioides Antibody by CF, CSF||Less than 1:2|
|Histoplasma M, CSF (CF)||Less than 1:2|
|Histoplasma Y, CSF (CF)||Less than 1:2|
|Blastomyces by Immunodiffusion, CSF||None detected|
Refer to report.
No compliance statements are in use for this test.
Negative fungal serology does not rule out the possibility of current infection. If Blastomyces antibodies are equivocal or positive by EIA then Blastomyces Immunodiffusion will be added. Additional charges apply.
