#ExistInterpData>The Fungitell ® test is indicated for presumptive diagnosis of fungal infection. It should be used in conjunction with other diagnostic procedures. This test does not detect certain fungal species such as Cryptococcus, which produces very low levels of (1,3)-beta-D-glucan. This test also does not detect the zygomycetes, such as Absidia, Mucor, and Rhizopus, which are not known to produce (1,3)-beta-D-glucan.
||Reference ranges for pediatric patients (less than 18 years old) have not been established. Assay ranges were validated in adult subjects.
