Beckman Coulter 34430 Access Rubella IgG Reagent INTENDED USE:

The Access Rubella IgG assay is a paramagnetic particle, chemiluminescent immunoassay for the qualitative and quantitative determination of IgG antibodies to the rubella virus in human serum using the Access Immunoassay Systems. The Access Rubella IgG assay aids in the diagnosis of rubella infection and the determination of immunity.

Beckman Coulter 34430 Access Rubella IgG Reagent SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION:

Rubella is a viral illness with worldwide distribution. The infection is usually benign or even unapparent in children or adults. Clinical manifestations include a generalized skin rash over the entire body, a low-grade fever, headache, and sometimes a sore throat. Infections in utero, particularly during the first four months of pregnancy, can lead to congenital defects such as deafness, cardiac problems, cataracts or glaucoma, and sometimes fetal death.The detection of specific rubella antibodies is of great interest due to the teratogenic risk related to a rubella primary infection at the beginning of the pregnancy. Early methodologies used for antibody detection included serum neutralization, complement binding or immunofluorescence.

These tests are difficult to perform and presented inherent problems of reproducibility. Subsequently, hemagglutination inhibition techniques allowed a more rapid diagnosis of both the acute infected state and patient immune status.Demonstration of rubella-IgG antibody in a pregnant women prior to conception provides assurance of fetal protection from possible rubella viral infection during pregnancy. Vaccination efficiency is demonstrated by detection of rubella-IgG antibody in serum following immunization. Appearance or significant rise of specific IgG concentration in two serum samples collected at least two weeks apart is indicative of rubella infection, even when typical symptoms may not be present.

Rubella test is a medical diagnostic blood test used to detect the presence of antibodies against the Rubella virus in the blood. Rubella, also known as the German measles, is a contagious viral infection affecting humans. The viral infection causes red rashes all over the skin. Though the side effects are similar to measles, rubella is caused by a different virus and is less invasive than measles. The rubella virus can cause drastic long-term effects on the unborn child, if the woman is infected during the pregnancy. The doctors recommend the MMR vaccine, which is highly effective against measles, mumps, and rubella. In some countries, the virus is very rare or non-existent.

Beckman Coulter 34430 Access Rubella IgG Reagent (Rubella IgG Test): What is rubella disease?

Rubella is a mild, flu-like infection. It causes fever and body rashes like that of measles. It is spread through direct contact from an infected person to a healthy individual via saliva, mucus, or respiratory droplets (coughing or sneezing). With timely vaccination, prevention is possible. Medications will help ease the symptoms within days to weeks.

Beckman Coulter 34430 Access Rubella IgG Reagent: What is the Rubella IgG Test used for?

The rubella test is widely used to examine the presence of rubella virus infection in a patient, especially pregnant women, who are at risk of catching the infection. The test measures the antibody levels against the viral infection. The presence of antibodies infers recent infection or vaccination. Antibodies are present in the blood for a long time.

Beckman Coulter 34430 Access Rubella IgG Reagent: Understanding the test results of Rubella Test

Rubella test is used to detect the presence of antibodies against Rubella infection in your blood. The test report mentions the numerical value of the antibodies. The antibody level of 10 IU/mL or greater indicates a positive test and infers that you have had a previous infection or vaccination. Kindly consult your doctor with the blood report for accurate information.
