Preferred test for detecting antibodies during acute or convalescent phase. Convalescent sera may be required for diagnosis.
Semi-Quantitative Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay

Cross- reactivity with Brucella and Yersinia antibodies may occur. Therefore, results should be interpreted with caution and correlated with clinical information. The best evidence for current infection is a significant change on two appropriately timed specimens, where both tests are performed in the same laboratory at the same time.
Laboratory Developed Test (LDT)
If the ELISA testing is equivocal or positive for IgG and/or IgM, then Francisella tularensis Antibodies by Agglutination will be added. Additional charges apply.
