Puumala IgG and IGM ELISA
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 test detects antibodies against Puumala virus. Cross-reactivity with Sin Nombre and Andes virus is expected but not or a lot less with Hantaan, Seoul and Dobrava virus.
If only IgM antibodies are detected during the acute stage of the disease, we advise sending a follow-up sample to track seroconversion of the IgG-antibodies.
Once per week
Depends on the total number of requested analyses. See ‘How frequently do we perform this analysis’.
