Aso Turbilatex (Quantitative)
The ASO (Antistreptolysin O) Turbilatex Test is a quantitative diagnostic test used to measure the level of antistreptolysin O antibodies in human serum. These antibodies are produced by the body in response to a streptococcal infection, such as strep throat or scarlet fever.
The ASO Turbilatex Test uses a turbidimetric immunoassay to measure the level of ASO antibodies in the blood specimen. The test kit contains reagents that react with ASO antibodies to produce a visible turbidity, which can be measured using a spectrophotometer or turbidimeter. The test can be performed in as little as 2-3 minutes.
To perform the ASO Turbilatex Test, a blood sample is collected from the patient and processed according to standard laboratory procedures. The prepared serum sample is then added to the test kit and the turbidimetric immunoassay is carried out using the provided reagents. The level of turbidity is then measured and compared to a standard chart to determine the level of ASO antibodies in the specimen.
The ASO Turbilatex Test is a quantitative and reliable tool for measuring the level of ASO antibodies in human serum. It can be used to diagnose and monitor the progression of streptococcal infections, and can also help to differentiate between current and past infections. However, it is important to note that a negative ASO Turbilatex Test does not rule out a streptococcal infection, and other diagnostic tests may be required for definitive diagnosis.
