Specialist classification: Infectious disease inspection and classification: pathogenic microorganism inspection

Applicable gender: whether men and women apply fasting: not fasting

Analysis results:

Below normal:
Below normal indicates no infection with Brucella virus.

Normal value:
no

Above normal:
Above normal, the probability of being infected with the Brucella virus is high.

Tips: Do not eat too greasy, high-protein foods the day before the blood draw, avoid heavy drinking. The alcohol content in the blood directly affects the test results. After 8 pm on the day before the medical examination, fasting should be done to avoid affecting the detection of indicators such as blood glucose in the second sky. Normal value

0 to 1:50.

Clinical significance

>1:50 is positive, and the coincidence rate of brucellosis is 93.88%.

High results may be diseases: Brucellosis, Brucella arthritis, Brucella erythema results may be disease: Brucellosis, Brucella arthritis, Brucella erythema

1. <1:25:1:25 to 1:50 is suspicious.

2. 1:100 is weakly positive.

3. Positive from 1:200 to 1:400.

4, ≥ 1:800 is strongly positive.

Inspection process

The serum to be tested was diluted 1:25 with physiological saline and then serially diluted to 1:800. Each tube was 0.5 ml, and each tube was separately added with 0.5 ml of diagnostic bacterial solution (1 billion/ml) and mixed. The results were observed after 37 to 20 hours in a 37 ° C water bath.

Not suitable for the crowd

Those who do not have an indication for examination should not do this check.

Adverse reactions and risks
