37547: Hantavirus Antibodies (IgG, IgM) Print View
Hantavirus Ab (IgG) ELISA     
Hantavirus Ab (IgM) ELISA     

PRIMARY
1 Serum 1 (0.3) mL   Room Temperature - 5 Day(s)/Refrigerated - 14 Day(s)/Frozen - 30 Day(s)  
ALTERNATE

Two major groups of hantaviruses are recognized based on clinical presentation. The first group includes Sin Nombre virus, which causes hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, a severe and possibly fatal form of acute respiratory distress. A second group of hantaviruses (including Seoul,Hantaan, Dobrava, and Puumala viruses) causes hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome, a condition not typically seen in the United States. Sera are initially tested for IgG and IgM Antibody recognizing the nucleocapsid protein common to all hantaviruses. All IgM equivocal and positive samples in US residents will be referred to a Public Health Laboratory for further testing in confirmatory assays to detect antibody specific for Sin Nombre virus. A positive result in the IgM Hantavirus ELISA but a negative result in the IgM confirmatory assay for Sin Nombre may indicate reactivity to a hantavirus causing hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome.
