Mononucleosis Serum_Plasma Rapid Test (Cassette) description:
The Cortez Diagnostics Inc. OneStep Mononucleosis Serum, Plasma RapiCard™ is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of Infectious Mononucleosis heterophile antibodies in serum or plasma as an aid in the diagnosis of Infectious Mononucleosis.
Infectious Mononucleosis (IM) is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus, which is a member of the herpesvirus family. Symptoms of IM are fever, sore throat and swollen lymph glands. In very rare cases, heart or central nervous system problems may occur. Diagnosis of IM is made based on the presence of heterophile antibodies. Infectious Mononucleosis heterophile antibodies belong to the IgM class. They are present in 80-90% of acute IM cases and can be detected in 60-70% of patients during the first week of clinical illness.1,2,3,4
