- Bartonella henselae, PCR
- Bartonella quintana, PCR
This test is intended to be used as an aid in the diagnosis of infections caused by Bartonella henselae or Bartonella quintana.
Cross-reactivity with other potentially pathogenic Bartonella spp (eg, B vinsonii) may occur. Alternate approaches, such as serological testing, may be necessary to confirm infection caused by Bartonella spp, other than Bartonella henselae and Bartonella quintana.
Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
Whole blood or tissue (lymph node)
0.5 mL whole blood or 5 mg tissue
0.2 mL whole blood or 1 mg tissue
Lavender-top (EDTA) tube, yellow-top (ACD) tube, or sterile container (tissue)
Whole blood: stable at room temperature or refrigerated for 14 days. Lymph node tissue: stable frozen for 30 days.
Causes for Rejection
Quantity not sufficient for analysis; gross specimen contamination; specimen too old; leaking or broken tube
