The Infection & Immunity Laboratory have changed their toxoplasma kit, Toxoreagent manufactured by Mast. This is a replacement as the manufacturer has discontinued the old kit (an older version of Toxoreagent).
The laboratory have undertaken a verification process and the new kit performs as well as their previous kit with a sensitivity of 94% and specificity 94%. The process for referral to the reference laboratory for confirmation and further testing remains unchanged so there will be no change in the performance of the test or service.
The ordering and reporting process remains the same.
