An IHA-test (total Ig) with adult worm extracts as antigen and an IgG ELISA with adult worm extract, enriched with egg antigen.
The tests are partly complimentary to each other and the combination of both raise the sensitivity to about 90%.
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 transport duration should be kept as short as possible (avoid transport over weekends or holidays).
Differentiation between the different schistosoma species is not possible.
Cross reaction with other trematodes is possible.
