T cell immunity against CMV is a factor in controlling viral latency and susceptibility to CMV disease. CMV can affect individuals with weaknesses in their T cell response and it is therefore an important and common cause of morbidity and mortality in solid organ and hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients. The T-SPOT.CMV test measures the strength of T cell responses to CMV specific antigens. The T-SPOT.CMV test has the potential to assist clinicians with monitoring anti-viral prophylaxis and evaluating patients at risk from CMV disease.
We are a national referral laboratory for the T-SPOT.CMV test which is also available as a CE-marked kit in the EU.
