Canine Influenza Virus HI H3N8 - CIVHI Sample Details: 250 ul serum Cost/Fee: $22.00 /sample Comment: Serum samples are stable at room temperature for several days. If longer, refrigerate or freeze. Paired serum samples are recommended for optimal diagnostic test interpretation. If you order this test, you will receive an HI titer against the H3N8 influenza virus. In addition, at no additional charge, you will also receive a separate result for the HI titer against the H3N2 virus that began circulating in dogs in the Chicago area circa March 2015. Details Reference Ranges Test Interpretations Lab Section: Virology Description: Hemagglutination Inhibition Test (antibody detection) specific for H3N8 virus. Automatically paired with HI test for H3N2 at no additional charge. Min Sample Volume: Collection Container: red top blood collection tube Coolant: It is recommended to ship samples with an ice pack. Test Target: Antibody Test Days: Thursday Test Turnaround (business days): 3-7 days No Reference Ranges This interpretation applies to both H3N8 and H3N2 CIV HI testing: The hemagglutination inhibition (HI) antibody titer is the reciprocal of the highest dilution of serum that prevents the agglutination of red blood cells by influenza A viruses. (endpoint dilution of 1:128 = HI antibody titer of 128). Titers are in units of antibody and as such all values reported without modifiers contain that specified amount of antibody in the sample. Values with a < (less than symbol) indicate no detectable antibody at the minimum readable dilution (<8 = no detectable antibody at a 1:8 dilution). An antibody titer can result from vaccination, infection, or passive maternal transfer. For Canine Influenza Virus the following guidelines are offered: HI titer <8 - no exposure to canine influenza virus or sample collected in very acute phase of the infection. Second serum needed to define status of an acutely ill dog. HI titers 8-128 - serum collected in acute phase of infection or Ab titers due to vaccination. HI titers >128 - evidence of exposure to canine influenza virus.
