Product Description

The EBV EBNA-1 IgG test is a chemiluminescent immunoassay (CLIA), for use on IDS automated analyzers, for quantitative determination of specific IgG class antibodies directed against the Epstein-Barr nuclear antigen (EBNA) in samples of human serum or plasma (K3-EDTA, Sodium Citrate).

This assay is used as a diagnostic aid when assessing infective mononucleosis (IM).

  • Complete panel available for the detection of the EBV infection
  • Early detection of EBV EBNA IgG in the sera of infected people
  • High specificity of the EBNA-1 IgG test in the primary infection
  • High specificity and sensitivity of the 3 tests VCA IgG , VCA IgM and EBNA-1 IgG when used together to evaluate the stage of the infection
