PRIMARY
1 CSF 0.7 (0.3) mL   Frozen - 30 Day(s)/Refrigerated - 7 Day(s)/Room Temperature - 48 Hour(s)  
ALTERNATE

This test is used to determine the presence of BK virus DNA in patients specimens. Detection of the virus in these specimens may be indicative of an ative infection, as PCR detects the presence of the virus, and not the host's reaction to the virus. Polyomavirus BK DNA detection in urine or plasma is associated with an increased risk of graft rejection in renal recipients.
