Pertussis Test

Reference Range

Pertussis is a respiratory tract infection caused by the gram-negative coccobacillus Bordetella pertussis. Pertussis is transmitted by droplet transfer (usually from sneezing or coughing) from an infected person. Pertussis is also known as whooping cough.

In most cases, a negative pertussis result indicates the absence of whooping cough.
