Diagnostic performance of a new automated heterophile antibody test in adults and children.

Abstract

Epstein-Barr virus serologic profiles were obtained from 618 patients using an automated platform, including the new BioPlex heterophile assay. When compared with 2 IgM viral capsid antigen (VCA) assays and a predicate heterophile assay, the BioPlex heterophile assay was more likely to be associated with serologic patterns of acute infection.
