Rubella Antibodies, IgG, Serum
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
This is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Diluted samples are incubated in antigen-coated (rubella antigen strain HPV-77) wells. Rubella antibodies, if present, are immobilized in the wells. Excess sample is removed with a wash step and conjugate is added and incubated. If IgG antibodies to rubella are present, the conjugate will be immobilized in the wells. Excess conjugate is removed with a second wash step. Substrate is added and incubated. The substrate is converted to a yellow end product, which is read photometrically.(Package insert: SeraQuest Rubella IgG Test Kit. SeraQuest, North Miami FL)
Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.
Monday through Friday; 9 a.m.
Analytic Time Defines the amount of time it takes the laboratory to setup and perform the test. This is defined in number of days. The shortest interval of time expressed is "same day/1 day," which means the results may be available the same day that the sample is received in the testing laboratory. One day means results are available 1 day after the sample is received in the laboratory.
Same Day/1 day
Maximum Laboratory Time Defines the maximum time from specimen receipt at Mayo Medical Laboratories until the release of the test result
Specimen Retention Time Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded
Performing Laboratory Location The location of the laboratory that performs the test
