The conjugate contains Evans Blue dye as a counterstain. This dye may be carcinogenic. Avoid contact with the skin.

The PBS Powder contains sodium azide, which may react with lead or copper plumbing to form highly explosive metal azide compounds. When disposing of reagents through plumbing fixtures, flush with a large volume of water to prevent azide build-up in drains.

Sodium azide is very toxic in case of ingestion. In contact with acid it emits a very toxic gas. In case of contact with the skin wash immediately and abundantly with water.

Control sera are considered POTENTIALLY BIOHAZARDOUS MATERIAL. Each donor unit used in the preparation of the control sera was tested by an FDA-cleared method for the presence of HBsAg, antibodies to HIV-1, HIV-2 and HCV and found to be negative. However, because no test method can offer complete assurance that infectious agents are absent, sera and all patients' specimens should be handled at the Biosafety Level 2.



  • An Immunofluorescence Test for the Detection of IgM Antibodies to Epstein-Barr Virus
  • Indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) method
  • Patient serum is reacted with the Burkitt's lymphocytic-cell substrate and if IgM antibodies to the viral capsid antigen of EBV are present they will bind to the antigen substrate and not rinse off
  • When fluoresceinated antihuman IgM is added to the reaction site, it will bind to the IgM antibodies, causing the EBV infected cells to fluoresce when viewed through the fluorescence microscope
  • For in vitro diagnostic use

  • Kit includes EBV Antigen Substrate Slides, Phosphate Buffered Saline (PBS) Powder, Control Sera, Conjugate and Mounting Fluid
