Description: The Herpes Types 1 & 2 test is a blood test used to detect IgG antibodies specific to HSV types 1 and/or 2 infection; confirm or rule out possible infection with herpes simplex types 1 and/or 2 virus in prenatal patients in whom HSV 2 infection can cause serious prenatal disease. Per CDC guidelines, specimens with equivocal or low positive results for HSV-2 type specific IgG will reflex for supplemental testing by another assay.
In a patient with no history of lesion disease, a positive result for this test may be indicative that the primary infection was asymptomatic. Once infected by HSV, it is possible for a patient to shed virus without the development of lesions (asymptomatic shedding). This test does not indicate the site of HSV infection. The magnitude of the Index Value is not indicative of the amount of antibody present in the patient sample. There is a considerable homology between HSV-1 and HSV-2 antigens, so that antibodies formed against either virus are highly cross-reactive. These assays are based on purified recombinant glycoprotein G-1 (HSV-1) or G-2 (HSV-2) antigens.
Description: The Comprehensive STD panel tests for the following STDs:
Chlamydia/Gonococcus/Genital Mycoplasma Profile, NAA, Urine - This test is used to detect Chlamydia trachomatis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Mycoplasma genitalium, Mycoplasma hominis, Ureaplasma spp.
Hepatitis B Surface Antibody, Quantitative - This test is used to measure and determine if vaccination is needed for Hepatitis B. Following a vaccination regimen, anti-HBs can be measured to determine if protective immunity has been achieved.
Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) Antibody - This test assesses exposure to hepatitis C virus infection.
HIV Antigen/Antibody Combo with Reflex to Confirmation - This test is used for the diagnosis of HIV infection, including acute and primary infection.
Complete Blood Count (CBC) With Differential - This test is used to evaluate your overall health and detect/identify a wide range of hematologic orders.
Urinalysis, Complete With Microscopic Examination - This test is used to detect abnormalities of urine; diagnose and manage renal diseases, urinary tract infection, urinary tract neoplasms, systemic diseases, and inflammatory or neoplastic diseases adjacent to the urinary tract.
Metabolic Panel (14), Comprehensive - The Metabolic Panel (14), Comprehensive test is a serum or plasma test that measures several different substances in your blood. It is one of the most commonly ordered lab tests. This test includes the following: glucose, calcium, albumin, total protein, sodium, potassium, bicarbonate, chloride, blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, alkaline phosphatase, alanine amino transferase, aspartate amino transferase, and bilirubin.
Description: The HIV Antigen/Antibody Combo with Reflex to Confirmation test is a serum test that is a CDC-recommended algorithm for laboratory diagnosis of HIV infection, including acute and primary infection. Reactive (repeatedly) specimens must be investigated by additional supplemental tests. A negative test for an individual does not preclude exposure to or infection with HIV-1 and/or HIV-2. Negative results can occur if the quantity of the marker present in the sample is too low for detection by the assay or if the marker is not present during the stage of disease in which a sample is collected.
Description: The Chlamydia (Chlamydophila) pneumoniae, IgG and IgM test is a serum test that employs immunofluorescence to detect IgG and IgM antibodies to Chlamydia pneumoniae in human serum. C pneumoniae has been implicated as one of the agents of atypical pneumonia and may be responsible for as many as 10% of all hospitalized and outpatient cases of pneumonia. Additionally, it may also be responsible for sinusitis and otitis.
