THINGS TO KNOW AFTER GETTING TESTED

Interpreting the typhidot test results

Normal range: Negative

The typhidot test is used for diagnosing S. Typhi and Paratyphi infections. A confirmation test is used if the typhoid IgG/IgM rapid test shows a positive result.
Interpretation of the result:

  • Positive: Positive IgM and IgM/IgG tests convey a current infection. However, a positive IgG test conveys a later stage of infection, a past infection, or a latent infection.
  • Negative: A negative typhidot test conveys absence of anti-S.typhi and anti-Paratyphi antibodies.

Comments:

  • Proper diagnostic procedures should be used to interpret the results of typhidot tests.
  • The infection may rapidly spread. If your typhoid IgM/IgG rapid test report is negative but you are experiencing the symptoms associated with the fever, you should get yourself tested again using a different method.
  • Antibodies prevalent due to a past infection or due to taking a typhidot vaccine can cause a false-positive result.
