Laboratory Tests for the Diagnosis of Toxoplasmosis
The diagnosis of toxoplasmosis may be established by serological tests, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), histological demonstration of the parasite and/or its antigens (i.e. immunoperoxidase stain), or isolation of the organism. The Dr. Jack S. Remington Laboratory for Specialty Diagnostics offers confirmatory serological and PCR testing and methods for isolation of the organism. In addition, our medical consultants (Jose G. Montoya, M.D. and Jack S. Remington, M.D.) are available for interpretation of test results and advice on management of patients.
