Interpretation

This assay detects antibodies against recombinant Hantavirus antigens of both old world and new world Hantavirus types. The immune response to Hantavirus infection is not type-specific, and thus cross-reactivity may occur. All Hantavirus IgM-positive samples from US residents will be sent to a Public Health Laboratory for Sin Nombre Virus (SNV)-specific IgM testing. Samples that are Hantavirus IgG positive but IgM negative will not be subjected to further type-specific testing, since the lack of IgM rules out acute infection.
