This test is used to diagnose recent infections with the Chikungunya virus in suspected patients (showing symptoms) or patients who have traveled to endemic areas. Sometimes repeat testing is done after an interval of a few days to confirm the results.
0.79 or less - No significant levels of Chikungunya IgM antibody
0.80 – 1.09 - Possible presence of Chikungunya IgM antibody. Repeat testing is required.
1.10 or greater - Definite indication for the presence of chikungunya IgM antibody.
This qualitative test helps in detecting the presence of the chikungunya virus in human serum, whole blood, and plasma. Chikungunya (IgM/IgG) test is the most practical lab method that helps in distinguishing the infection present with similar symptoms. This test also helps in detecting recent or past infections with the chikungunya virus in patients. Chikungunya test determines the presence of IgG and IgM antibodies. The detection limit of the virus is compared with the referral range to find out the value of the collective sample.
