Blastomyces Quant Ag, CSF and BF (316)
Aid in the diagnosis for blastomycosis
Monitoring to help determine when treatment can be stopped
Ship to arrive Monday through Friday using a next day delivery service. May ship sample at room temperature.
Tissue, Sputum, Bronchial Brushings, Stool, FNA, Biopsy, Tracheal or Bone Marrow Aspirate
Sputolysin, sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide degrade the analyte detected in the assay.
Cross-reactivity occurs between blastomycosis and histoplasmosis and in paracoccidioidomycosis, penicillosis, coccidioidomycosis, aspergillosis and sporotrichosis.
Positive samples may require confirmation which could extend TAT.
None Detected: <0.31 ng/mLPositive: ≥0.31 ng/mL – 20.00 ng/mLPositive Above the Limit of QuantificationsResults greater than 20.00 ng/mL fall outside the linear range of the assay. These results are positive, but not accurately quantifiable.
Results should be correlated with clinical presentation and history
