Diagnose and monitor B. dermatitidis. For serum specimens, refer to Blastomyes Antigen Quantitative by EIA (2002926).
Quantitative Enzyme Immunoassay
Tue, Thu, Sat
Transfer 1 mL urine to an ARUP Standard Transport Tube. (Min: 0.5 mL)
Specimens preserved in boric acid.
Ambient: Unacceptable; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: Indefinitely
The quantitative range of this assay is 1.25-200 U/mL. Antigen concentrations less than 1.25 U/mL or greater than 200 U/mL fall outside the linear range of the assay and cannot be accurately quantified.
This EIA test should be used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures, including microbiological culture, histological examination of biopsy samples, serology and/or radiographic evidence, to aid in the diagnosis of blastomycosis.
Cross-reactivity with other endemic mycoses (Histoplasma and Coccidioides) may occur. Positive test results should be correlated with other clinical findings and relevant exposure history.
No compliance statements are in use for this test.
