Interpretive

Reference Range:

Total Ab (IgG & IgM):

<1:8 Antibody Not Detected

≥1:8 Antibody Detected

Single titers of ≥1:64 are indicative of recent or current infection. Titers of 1:8 – 1:32 may be indicative of either past of recent infection, since complement fixation antibody levels persist for only a few months. A four-fold or greater increase in titer between acute and convalescent specimens confirms the diagnosis.

Critical Values:

N/A

Limitations:

N/A

Methodology:

Complement fixation (CF)
