FPOLO-M
POLIOVIRUS (TYPES 1, 3) ANTIBODIES, NEUTRALIZATION

Test Code FPOLO-M 
Test Poliovirus (Types 1, 3) Antibodies, Neutralization 
Methodology Culture/Neutralization 
Description This sensitive procedure is recommended for vaccine response testing and type-specific serodiagnosis of recent poliovirus infection. It can also serve as an aid for diagnosing immune deficiency disorders. 
Specimen Draw blood in a plain red-top tube or serum gel tube. Spin down and send 1mL (minimum 0.5mL) of serum refrigerated. 
Reference Values Polio 1 Titer: <1:8

Polio 3 Titer: <1:8

The presence of neutralizing serum antibodies (titers 1:8 up to >1:128) against polioviruses implies lifelong immunity. Some persons without detectable titers (<1:8) may also be immune as demonstrated by elicitation of a secondary-type serum antibody response upon rechallenge with live polio vaccine.
