Description:

Immunoglobulin M Quantitative Blood Test

The Immunoglobulin M, Quantitative, Blood (Serum) test is used to identify and monitor certain infections in fetuses or newborn infants.  This test is also commonly known as the Antibody M test.  Immunoglobulins are proteins produced by immune cells as a response to bacteria, viruses or other foreign organisms.  Immunoglobulin M (IgM) is typically the first immune response to a new infection and the first type of immunoglobulin to be produced by a fetus or newborn.  The presence and measurement of IgM antibodies will determine if an infection is present and whether the infection is acute or chronic.  IgM antibodies cannot be transferred from a mother to her infant through the placenta.  Elevated IgM levels in a newborn are typically indicative of an acute infection which began during pregnancy.

For a more comprehensive screening, the Immunoglobulin IgA IgG IgM test is also available.

Turnaround time for this test is typically 1-2 business days.
