Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) antibodies blood tests are used to help diagnose EBV infection, the most common cause of infectious mononucleosis (mono) if a person is symptomatic but has a negative mono test.  These tests may be ordered for an asymptomatic person to see if that person has been previously exposed to EBV or is susceptible to a primary EBV infection.

Symptoms include:

Extreme weakness or fatigue
Sore throat
Swollen lymph glands in the neck and/or armpits
Enlarged spleen and/or liver (sometimes)

The PCR method will identify the genetic material of the virus and will aid in identifying EBV in a variety of clinical specimens.  A qualitative test will produce a positive or negative result.
