Chlamydia Pneumoniae PCR
Reference Values Describes reference intervals and additional information for interpretation of test results. May include intervals based on age and sex when appropriate. Intervals are Mayo-derived, unless otherwise designated. If an interpretive report is provided, the reference value field will state this.
Not detected = Negative, no virus detected
Detected = Positive, virus detected
This test employs PCR amplification and agarose gel electrophoresis detection of a Chlamydia pneumoniae-specific conserved genetic target. A positive result should be coupled with clinical indicators for diagnosis. A "Not detected" result for this assay does not exclude Chlamydia pneumoniae involvement in a disease process.
