The Serology section performs automated immunoassays to detect specific antibodies in serum. The presence or absence of antibodies is used in the diagnosis of infectious diseases and also for immune status. We utilize chemilluminometric assays to test for antibodies to Hepatitis A, B, and C and HIV. Enzyme immunoassays are performed to aid in the diagnosis of Epstein-Barr Virus (infectious mononucleosis), Helicobacter pylori, herpes types 1and 2, celiac disease, and lyme disease. Enzyme immunoassays are also used to determine immune status to measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella zoster (chicken pox).
