Changes to the pneumococcal antibody assay


From the week commencing 17th August 2015, the Infection & Immunity laboratory will stop using our in house pneumococcal antibody assay and move to a commercially available CE marked assay (supplied by The Binding Site). This uses the same reference standard as our in-house assay. This change is the result of the standards previously used in the in house assay being no longer available.

In house validations have shown a very good agreement between the Binding site and our in house test in assessing who should be offered pneumococcal test immunisation.
