Turnround CommentIf the Chlamydia IgG result is positive or indeterminate the sample is then referred to the reference laboratory for Chlamydia Type specific antibodies. There is considerable cross reaction between C.trachomatis , C.pneumoniae and C.psittaci on the Chlamydia trachomatis IgG EIA. This additional test takes around 14 days.
