Rickettsial Disease Panel

Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

If R. Typhi IgG is Detected - FRTG Rickettsia (Typhus Fever) IgG Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

If R. Typhi IgM is Detected - FRTM Rickettsia (Typhus Fever) IgM Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

If RMSF IgG is Detected - FRMFG Rickettsia (RMSF) IgG Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

If RMSF IgM is Detected - FRMFM Rickettsia (RMSF) IgM Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

If Q Fever IgG Phase I (FQGI) is Positive – FQFG1 Q Fever IgG Phase I Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

If Q Fever IgM Phase I (FQMI) is Positive – FQFG2 Q Fever IgM Phase I Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

If Q Fever IgG Phase II (FQG2S) is Positive – FQFM1 Q Fever IgG Phase II Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

If Q Fever IgM Phase II (FQM2S) is Positive – FQFM2 Q Fever IgM Phase II Titer will be performed at an additional charge.

Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing

Serum

Specimen Required Defines the optimal specimen. This field describes the type of specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing. The volume allows automated processing, fastest throughput and, when indicated, repeat or reflex testing.

Draw blood in a plain red-top or serum gel tube(s). Spin down and send 2 mL of serum refrigerated.

Specimen Minimum Volume Defines the amount of specimen required to perform an assay once, including instrument and container dead space. Submitting the minimum specimen volume makes it impossible to repeat the test or perform confirmatory or perform reflex testing. In some situations, a minimum specimen volume may result in a QNS (quantity not sufficient) result, requiring a second specimen to be collected.

0.5 mL

Reject Due To Identifies specimen types and conditions that may cause the specimen to be rejected
