Candida Panel

Our Candida Antibodies and Antigen panel analyzes Candida antigen and IgG, IgA, and IgM antibodies specific to Candida to help identify an overgrowth of the fungus, suspected to be the underlying cause of a number of symptoms ranging from

  • High levels of specific IgG antibodies against Candida may be indicative of past or ongoing infections.
  • High levels of specific IgA antibodies against Candida are thought to be associated with mucosal epithelial, tracheobronchial, and genito-urinary candida infections.
  • IgM antibodies are generally regarded as the predominant immunoglobulins involved in early infections.
  • The detection of Candida antigen in serum may suggest that mucosal and immunological barriers have been overwhelmed.

We offer a full Candida panel, or single antibody testing of IgG and IgA as an add-on to our food panels.

  • Candida Antigen
  • IgG/IgM/IgA specific to Candida antigen

Testing Process

Our Candida antibodies and antigen panel is a semi-quantitative ELISA anaIysis of Candida, IgG, IgM, and IgA antibodies specific to Candida antigen.

Specimens are tested in duplicate on ELISA platform. The antibodies, once bound to Candida antigen, are detected through spectrophotometric analysis wherein the values are directly proportional to the concentration of the analytes in the sample.
