12221-8Heterophile Ab [Presence] in Serum by Sheep Cell AgglutinationActive

Part Description

LP38397-3   Heterophile Ab
The test detects heterophile antibodies triggered by an Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection. This is a rapid test that detects infectious mononucleosis due to EBV. Commercially-available kits are 70-92% sensitive and 96-100% specific. It will generally not be positive during the first 4-6 week incubation period, before the onset of the symptoms. It will also not generally be positive after the active infection has subsided, even though the virus persists in infected cells for the rest of the carrier's life.
