Infectious mononucleosis, also called grandular fever because of the presence of generalized lymphadenopathy, is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a member of the Herpesviridae family. Sore throat, tonsillar enlargement and palatal petechiae can also occur, with the potential complications of splenomegaly, hepatitis and autoimmune hemolytic disorders.
Detection of specific IgM and IgG antibodies to EBV antigens using the Bio-Rad EBV EIA microplate technology allows confirmation of the stage of the infection.
Accurate identification of specific EBV IgG and IgM antibodies is also available in 2 minutes using single and rapid RDT EBV IgG and IgM Assays.
