Antibody test for IgG and IgM against chicken pox and shingles

Chickenpox, a common infectious disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), affects both children and adults. The immune system's two main players in the fight against chickenpox are immunoglobulin G (IgG) and immunoglobulin M (IgM). These antibodies play a crucial role in the understanding of the disease, diagnosis and assessment of the immune response. IgM and IgG antibodies are also used to assess immunity to shingles (chickenpox), which is also caused by the Varicella-zoster virus (VZV). Shingles occurs when the virus is reactivated after lying dormant in the body following a previous chickenpox infection.

This analysis gives you insight into your immunity to chicken pox with our antibody test based on a venous blood sample. Immunity testing includes both IgM and IgG antibody analysis to provide a detailed and accurate assessment of your immune status. The basis of our analysis is a simple venous blood test, which provides reliable results.

Assessing both IgM and IgG antibodies to varicella is critical for a comprehensive assessment of immune response and infection status:

Early detection with IgM:

IgM antibodies are the first antibodies produced upon a new infection. By measuring IgM levels, early identification of ongoing or recent chickenpox infection is possible.

Long-term protection with IgG:

IgG antibodies remain in the body and provide long-term protection. Analysis of IgG provides an assessment of immunity and shows whether the individual's body has previously been exposed to chickenpox.

Antibodies are part of the body's immune system.

IgG antibodies Chicken pox
Chickenpox is a common infectious disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus. In the fight against this disease, immunoglobulin G (IgG), a specific type of antibody whose task is to create long-term immunity by fighting infections and viruses such as the varicella-zoster virus, plays a role.
