Interpretive

Reference Range:
Less than 0.4 ng/mL Not detected
0.4-3.1 ng/mL Detected (below the limit of quantification)
3.2-20.0 ng/mL Detected
Greater than 20.0 ng/mL Detected (above the limit of quantification)
The quantitative range of this assay is 3.2-20.0 ng/mL. Antigen concentrations between 0.4-3.1 ng/mL or greater than 20.0 ng/mL fall outside the linear range of the assay, and cannot be accurately quantified.
Use:Aids in the diagnosis of histoplasmosis. Recommend testing in conjunction with Histoplasma Antbodies by CF & ID and Histoplasma Antigen Quantitative by EIA, Serum. This EIA test should be used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures, including microbiological culture, histological examination of biopsy sample, and/or radiographic evidence.
