Fungal Serology

Fungal Serology

Double diffusion assay for the detection of precipitating antibodies

 

    • Aspergillus fumigates in serum. Serological tests for precipitins are significant in the diagnosis of aspergilloma, invasive and allergic aspergillosis.
    • thermophilic actinomycetes. Micropolyspora faeni, an aerobic thermophilic actinomycete is the predominant organism found in mouldy hay. When inhaled M. faeni can cause a pulmonary hypersensitivity reaction known as “Farmers’ Lung”.
    • Avian allergens. “Bird Fanciers Disease” is another hypersensitivity disease, and is caused by inhalation of antigens, principally from bird droppings. Demonstration of precipitating antibodies form part of the diagnosis of the disease.

Febrile Antigens

Febrile Antigens are stained bacterial suspensions that can be used either as a screening test, (rapid slide agglutinating procedure) or as a confirmatory test (tube agglutination) to verify positive results found by the rapid slide method. In the event of an infection by a pathogenic micro-organism, antibodies are produced against the micro-organism. Tests are used to detect these antibodies and it can also be used to measure a rise or fall in antibody titre, as the infection progresses.

    • Salmonella Antigens
    • Brucella Antigens
    • Proteus Antigens
    • Febrile Antigens
    • VDRL Antigens

Urine Analysis

Urine Analysis

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) Pregnancy Test

(HCG) is a glycoprotein hormone secreted by the developing placenta beginning shortly after fertilization. At the time of the first missed menstrual period, HCG concentrations in serum and urine are about 100mIU/ml and double in concentration every 1.2 to 2 days. Peak levels of over 100,000 mIU/ml HCG are seen late in the first trimester of pregnancy. The early appearance of HCG in urine following conception has been made the marker of choice in the early detection of pregnancy.

 

One Step Pregnancy Assay

The lateral flow, one step pregnancy test is a chromatographic immunossay (CIA) for the rapid qualitative determination of HCG in urine. Based on the test’s high sensitivity, pregnancy can be determined as early as the first day of the missed menstrual period. The immunological specificity of the test virtually eliminates cross reactivity and interference of structurally related glycoproteins such as hFSH, hLH, and hTSH.
