ECHOVIRUS ANTIBODIES

LAB3220

Collect

Serum separator tube or plain red. OR CSF.

Specimen Preparation

Separate serum from cells within 2 hours of collection. Transport 1 mL serum or CSF. (Min: 0.3 mL) Parallel testing is preferred and convalescent samples must be received within 30 days from receipt of acute samples. Mark samples plainly as "acute" or "convalescent."

Unacceptable Conditions

Plasma.

Storage/Transport Temperature

Refrigerated.

Stability (from collection to initiation)

Ambient: 48 hours; Refrigerated: 2 weeks; Frozen: 1 year (avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles)

Performed

Mon-Fri

Methodology

Semi-Quantitative Serum Neutralization

Reported

6-9 days

Synonyms

  • LAB3220
  • ECHO

Ordering Recommendations

Detect neutralizing antibodies to echovirus types 6, 7, 9, 11, and 30.

Reference Interval

Echovirus 6:  Less than 1:10
Echovirus 7:  Less than 1:10
Echovirus 9:  Less than 1:10
Echovirus 11: Less than 1:10
Echovirus 30: Less than 1:10

Interpretive Data

Single positive antibody titers of greater than or equal to 1:80 may indicate past or current infection.  Seroconversion or an increase in titers between acute and convalescent sera of at least fourfold is considered strong evidence of current or recent infection.
