Please note that from 15/4/19
Mycoplasma serology (IgG and IgM) will no longer be performed on blood samples from patients >25yrs old, as this test is unhelpful and may not provide a definitive result until the convalescent phase of the illness. Please send a green topped viral swab for Mycoplasma PCR testing which is more sensitive in the diagnosis of atypical pneumonia.

Where both Serology and Blood Sciences tests are requested, please ensure that a separate request and a separate sample are sent to Serology.  Unfortunately, we are unable to process tests that have been tested on Blood Science analysers due to contamination issues.
