An abnormal Serology Test

medic-563425_1280Detection of antibodies from serological testing can be used to either diagnose an active or previous infection, or to determine if you are immune to reinfection by an organism. As the disease gets worse, more antibodies will be present. If a disease is suspected, the test may need to be repeated 10 days to 2 weeks after the first test.

If antibodies are found, you may:
Have a current infection.
Have been infected in the past.
Have immunity to a certain organism and are unlikely to become sick.

Some of the different diseases that can be detected include:
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
Fungal infection
