Expanding Test Menu to Offer Immunoassays
In the ever-changing field of medicine, it’s comforting to know your lab has your best interests in mind so you can provide the highest level of care to your patients. Danner Laboratory has expanded our test menu to offer the latest immunoassays for Hepatitis, HIV, VZV and RPR detection.
Varicella-Zoster IgG Antibody Detection
The assay is for qualitative and semi-quantitative detection of IgG antibodies to Varicella-Zoster Virus (VZV) in human serum to determine a prior exposure to VZV. When evaluating paired sera, it allows the determination of acute or convalescent stage of VZV infection.
Hepatitis B Core Antibody
In acute HBV infection, antibody to core antigen is present in the circulation shortly before clinical symptoms. Hep B Core Antibody Assay is an immunoassay for detection of antibody to HBV core antigen in human serum or plasma.
Hepatitis B Surface Antibody
Hep B Surface Ag Antibody Assay is an immunoassay for detection of antibody to Hepatitis B surface antigen (Anti-HBs) in human serum or plasma. The test can be used prior and after hepatitis B vaccination to assess the immune status as well as an aid to diagnose and monitor infections by hepatitis B virus.
Hepatitis B Surface Antigen
Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) is the first marker that appears in the circulation following infection with hepatitis B virus; an enzyme immunoassay diagnostic kit for in-vitro qualitative detection of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) in human serum or plasma.
Hepatitis C Antibody
In response to Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, antibody to the virus is generated in the patient circulation. Hep C Antibody Assay is an advanced enzyme immunoassay for detection of the antibody in patient serum or plasma.
HIV Antigen and Antibody Detection (4th Generation)
HIV Ag-Ab COMBO Assay is a solid phase Enzyme Linked Immunosorbent assay using a mixture of antigens and antibodies for detection of antibodies to HIV-1, HIV-2 and HIV-1 p24 antigen in human serum or plasma. The assay is geared for early detection of HIV infection.
The test is an agglutination assay intended to be used for the detection of Treponema Pallidum antibodies in human serum or plasma as an aid in the diagnosis of syphilis. It is also a syphilis confirmatory test for samples reactive by the Rapid Plasma Ragin (RPR) card test.
