BT 6004
356-2591
Specimen(s):
CSF
Collection Medium:
Sterile container
Minimum:
1 mL CSF in sterile container.
Delivery Instructions:
Deliver to laboratory immediately after collection.
Testing Schedule:
Batched test performed on Tuesday and Friday.
Reference Range:
Negative
Interpretive Data:
Analytical range in log10 values: 2.7 - 6.48 log10 IU/mL (500-3,000,000 IU/mL non-log transformed values) Positive results less than 500 IU/mL will be reported as <2.7 log10 IU/mL and negative results will be reported as "Not detected" (NOT DET). The assay is calibrated to the WHO international standard.
Comments:
Analytical range in log10 values: 2.70 - 6.48 log IU/mL (500-3,000,000 IU/mL)

Positive results less than 2.70 log10 IU/mL (500 IU/mL) will be reported as "POS <2.70 LOG IU" ("POS <500 LOG IU"). Negative results will be reported as "Not detected".
