25573 Arbovirus IgM Antibody, Diagnostic Panel (SS02201)

Arbovirus IgM Antibody, Diagnostic Panel (SS02201)
Test Code: ARBOMSO
Synonyms/Keywords
Eastern Equine Encephalitis, St. Louis Encephalitis, La Crosse Encephalitis, West Nile Virus, Jamestown Canyon Virus and Powassan Virus.​
Test Components
Qualitative IgM testing for Eastern Equine Encephalitis, St. Louis Encephalitis, La Crosse Encephalitis, West Nile Virus, Jamestown Canyon Virus and Powassan Virus.
Useful For

Serodiagnosis of a recent infection with any of these agents in individuals with symptoms of arbovirus encephalitis with no other laboratory diagnosis.

Testing will not be performed as a screening test or on patients without symptoms of arbovirus infection.

Specimen Requirements
Fasting Required Specimen Type Preferred Container/Tube Acceptable Container/Tube Specimen Volume Specimen Minimum Volume
(allows for 1 repeat)
Pediatric Minimum Volume
(no repeat)
​No ​CSF ​Sterile Container/Tube ​3.0 mL ​2.0 mL
​No ​Serum ​Red Top Tube (RTT) ​Serum Separator Tube (SST) ​3.0 mL ​1.0 mL
Collection Processing Instructions
​PROVIDE ONSET DATE, TRAVEL HISTORY AND SYMPTOMS.  Specimens should be collected in the acute phase of illness.  Store and transport to WSLH at 2-8 degrees Celsius (refrigerated with cool packs). 

If submitting CSF, a serum sample must also be sent for the same testing. Order two ARBOMSO tests, one for CSF and one for serum.  Testing will not be performed if only CSF is submitted. Must collect serum sample within 48 hours of CSF sample collection. Alternatively, serum may be submitted by itself. Indicate on sample and order if the sample is CSF or serum.  
Specimen Stability Information
Specimen Type Temperature Time
​CSF ​Refrigerated 48 hours
​Serum ​Refrigerated ​48 hours
Rejection Criteria
Room Temperature
Interference
Cross-reaction may occur between the arboviruses. Negative results on a single acute phase specimen do not rule out infection, as specimen may have been obtained prior to the development of an antibody response.
