Treponema pallidum IgG ELISA
This test has been approved by the FDA for the screening of donors of blood, blood components, human cells, tissues and cellular tissue based products (HCT/Ps). This test is not intended to be used for routine clinical or routine diagnostic evaluation.
Detection of treponemal antibodies may indicate recent, past, or successfully treated syphilis infections, therefore, the test cannot be used to differentiate between active and cured cases. A reactive syphilis antibody test result may be used to disqualify a potential blood, cell or tissue donor.
