Aid in the diagnosis of enteroviral infections
Weak cross-reactivity was observed with some strains of rhinovirus that could be present in respiratory samples, and a false-positive result is possible if samples contain these viruses.
This test was developed, and its performance characteristics determined, by ViroMed. It has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA has determined that such clearance or approval is not necessary. Test results should be interpreted in conjunction with clinical observations and other laboratory data and not used as the sole basis for diagnosis.
Real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
Amniotic fluid, uncentrifuged
Sterile plastic conical tube
Amniotic fluid should not be centrifuged. To avoid delays in turnaround time when requesting multiple tests on frozen samples, please submit separate frozen specimens for each test requested.
Freeze (preferred) or refrigerate.
Causes for Rejection
Quantity not sufficient for analysis; gross specimen contamination; specimen too old; leaking or broken tube
