Blood Test : Mononucleosis Test or Monospot

Mononucleosis is a common, nonserious viral disease which causes a wide variety of symptoms. The monospot test involves mixing reagents with a drop of blood on a microscope slide. Results of the test are read, usually in less than one hour, as positive (you have the disease) or negative. Because the test may be negative in the early part of the illness, it must be repeated later if symptoms persist.

Mononucleosis is often confused clinically with strep throat because of their similar appearance on physical examination of the pharynx (throat). This test is performed by means of a venipuncture specimen.
