Background: Serological testing for antibodies against epitopes from pathogens is a valuable tool for investigating the relationship between infection and disease. This study comprehensively evaluates the impact of pre-analytic variation on antibody seropositivities to a selected set of antigens arising from delays in processing of blood samples, pre-processing storage-temperature and vacutainer-type. Methods: We assessed peripheral blood collected from 29 volunteers in four different...[Show more]
