Heparinized specimens, whole blood, serum, CSF, tissue, bone marrow, body fluid. Refer to Epstein-Barr Virus by Qualitative PCR (ARUP test code 0050246) for other sample types.
After separation from cells: Ambient: 24 hrs; Refrigerated: 6 days; Frozen: 6 months
The quantitative range of this test is 1.54-8.00 log IU/mL (35.0-100,000,000 IU/mL).
An interpretation of "Not Detected" does not rule out the presence of inhibitors or EBV DNA concentration below the level of detection of the assay. Care should be taken in the interpretation of any single viral load determination.
International standardization has improved comparability of assay results across laboratories, but discrepancies still exist due to commutability issues with the standard.
The limit of quantification for this assay is 1.54 log IU/mL (35.0 IU/mL). If the assay DETECTED the presence of the virus but was not able to accurately quantify the viral load, the test result will be reported as "Not Quantified, Detected."
