Interpretive

Reference Range:

Less than 7.2 IU/mL

NTOX-TCOM

Negative-Absence of detectable Toxoplasma gondii IgG antibodies. A negative result does not rule out acute infection. The magnitude of the measured result is not indicative of the amount of antibody present. The concentrations of anti-Toxoplasma gondii IgG in a given specimen determined with assays from different manufacturers can vary due to differences in assay methods and reagent specificity.

7.2 to less than 8.8 IU/mL

EQAB-TCOM

Equivocal – Please recollect. The magnitude of the measured result is not indicative of the amount of antibody present. The concentrations of anti-Toxoplasma gondii IgG in a given specimen determined with assays from different manufacturers can vary due to differences in assay methods and reagent specificity.

Greater than or equal to 8.8 IU/mL

PTOX-TCOM

Positive – Presence of detectable Toxoplasma gondii IgG antibodies. A positive result generally indicates either recent or past exposure to the pathogen. The magnitude of the measured result is not indicative of the amount of antibody present. The concentrations of anti-Toxoplasma gondii IgG in a given specimen determined with assays from different manufacturers can vary due to differences in assay methods and reagent specificity.
