ImmunoDOT Mono G, ImmunoDOT Mono M, ImmunoDOT ToRCH and ImmunoDOT ToRCH IgM (Export Only) detect CMV antibodies. Since CMV is a common cause of glandular fever or mononucleosis-like syndrome (MLS) and cannot be clinically distinguished from EBV infections, CMV is included in both ImmunoDOT Mono products. ImmunoDOT TORCH kits also include a CMV dot. This analyte is included as part of a comprehensive prenatal screening protocol. In the United States, approximately 1 - 2% of all fetuses are born with congenital CMV infection acquired when the mother undergoes primary infection or reactivation of latent infection during pregnancy. Approximately 5 - 10% of infants become infected with CMV at delivery or shortly thereafter.
