Rapid plasma reagin screening when T pallidum antibody screen is positive


This test is not useful as a screening or confirmatory test for blood donor specimens.

Testing Algorithm Delineates situations when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

If the rapid plasma reagin (RPR) screen is reactive, then the RPR titer will be performed at an additional charge.


If the RPR screen is nonreactive, then syphilis antibody Treponema pallidum particle agglutination testing will be performed at an additional charge.
