For corfirmations of a treponemal test with a second treponemal test, TPPA is standard.
In exceptional cases a Line Immunoassay (LIA) IgG can be performed.
For 1 or 2 serological analyses: at least 1 ml serum
For 3 to 5 serological analyses: at least 2 ml serum
The serum can be sent at room temperature, but the duration of transportation must be reduced as much as possible (avoid weekends or holidays).
The LIA will only be performed after consulting the clinical biologist.
LIA: Once per 2 weeks
Depends on the total number of requested analyses. See ‘How frequently do we perform this analysis’.
