Radioactivity: The farr assay is a radioimmunologic assay. It uses radiolabeled antigens to detect specific antibodies in serum. The antigens are allowed to react with the serum and then precipitated using a special reagent such as protein a sepharose beads. The bound radiolabeled immunoprecipitiate is commonly analzyed by gel electrophoresis. ...Read more

HSV 1 positive through blood test =[LIAISON assay using chemiluminescence immunoassay (CLIA) tech.] Index=1.47, how likely is it false positive?
Accurate?: The ANA is fraught with technical difficulties, but it's also critical that you understand how nonspecific a positive ANA is, even at a fairly high titer like 1:160. Perhaps one older person in 4 has a positive ANA and it proves nothing -- the vast majority of healthy. It's only one piece of a diagnostic puzzle. Hope this helps -- if not please repost and let us know exactly what' s up. ...Read more

My rubella IgM ELISA value is 0.05 UI/ML, CMV IgM ELISA value is 0.16 UI/ML, CMV IgG value is 6.8 UI/ML, and
Rubella IgG value 39.8 UI/ML. is it safe?
Depends on range: If the IgM values are within the lab's normal range, then this means you have had previous exposure or vaccination. If the IgM is well above the lab's normal range, then possibly you have recently been infected or vaccinated. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests, and make sure to discuss the issue of false positives. ...Read more

Which of these 3 hep c antibody screening tests(methodology)is the most accurate: Architect Anti-HCV, Advia Centauer HCV or Roche Eclia?

HIV testing: Yes. Of course it is. That is as long as you have allowed enough time to past for your body to produce antibodies against the HIV if you are infected. If you are not infected then if you only test with the HIV antibody test, you must wait six months after exposure for it to be fully reliable and accurate if you test negative. The situation in reality is that no one need wait that long ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ebvab VCA IgM <36 (range 0-35.9), ebvearly antigenab IgG 37 (0-8.9), ebvab VCA IgG >600 (0-17.9), EBV nuclearantigenab IgG 409 (0-17.9) mono? No mono?
You had mono...: Your mono-like symptoms likely prompted the testing- i hope you are starting to feel a little better. Testing for different antibodies (igm and igg) against ebv, requires careful interpretation. In early phases of infection, the igm level peaks first followed by a decline; levels of igg peak afterwards, and may remain elevated for quite a while. ...Read more
