Coccidioides Antigen Testing is Key to Faster & More Accurate Coccidioidomycosis Diagnosis

Adding coccidioides antigen testing to standard antibody and pathology testing for coccidioidomycosis is more effective than other diagnostic methods alone. Coccidioides antigen testing offers faster detection and earlier diagnosis. It also offers higher sensitivity in cases of severe disease and immunocompromised patients. Additionally, coccidioides antigen testing offers higher specificity, even in endemic areas.

Learn about the MiraVista Diagnostics MVista® Coccidioides Quantitative Ag EIA and the benefits of incorporating coccidioides antigen testing into your diagnostic protocol for coccidioidomycosis.

Advantages of Coccidioides Antigen Testing

Antibody testing alone is not enough to quickly and accurately diagnose coccidioidomycosis in immunocompromised patients or meningitis. Missed or late diagnosis can be fatal. Early and accurate detection can improve patient outcomes and save lives.

HIGH SENSITIVITY

  • 93% in CSF meningitis cases
  • 81% in immunocompromised patients
  • 70% in moderate – severe cases
  • 67% in mild cases when testing serum and urine

HIGH SPECIFICITY

  • 98% in non-fungal cases
  • 90% in histoplasmosis

ACCURATE DETECTION

  • in immunocompromised patients
  • in endemic areas
  • in meningitis

FASTER RESULTS

  • same day test results for urine/BAL
  • 1 day test results for serum/plasma/CSF
