Epstein-Barr Viral Panel and Herpes Simplex IgG will Become a Mailout Test to ARUP

The Epstein-Barr Viral panel and Herpes Simplex IgG currently performed in the Clinical Microbiology Laboratories will become a mail-out test to ARUP Laboratories effective immediately.  This decision was necessitated by staffing shortages in Microbiology.

To order this test use the Miscellaneous requisition A-1A and deliver the sample to Specimen Control, 6240 RCP.  Sample collection remains the same.  Additional details are available in the Pathology Laboratory Services Handbook at:

Epstein-Barr Virus Antibody to Nuclear Antigen, IgG        

Epstein-Barr Virus Antibody to Viral Capsid Antigen, IgG

Epstein-Barr Virus Antibody to Viral Capsid Antigen, IgM

Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 and/or 2 Antibodies, IgG
