EBV DNA quantitation
A nucleic acid amplification test for the quantitation of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA in plasma. This assay can quantify EBV DNA between 35 IU/mL and 1E+08 IU/mL.
Determine degree of EBV replication. Particularly useful as a predictor for lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) in post-transplant patients.
