Normal range: Not Detected This EIA test should be used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures, including microbiological culture, histological examination of biopsy samples, serology and/or radiographic evidence, to aid in the diagnosis of blastomycosis. Positive test results should be correlated with other clinical findings and relevant exposure history.
Antigen concentrations less than 1.25 U/mL or greater than 200 U/mL fall outside the linear range of the assay and cannot be accurately quantified. Cross-reactivity with other endemic mycoses (Histoplasma and Coccidioides) may occur.
