Endo-Staph® Teichoic Acid Antibody
Endo-Staph<sup>®</sup> Teichoic Acid Antibody

Anti-staphylococcal ribitol teichoic acid. Endo-Staph® Teichoic Acid Antibody test is a standardized, semiquantitative screening procedure for antibodies to staphylococcal ribitol teichoic acid. High titers (>1:4) of precipitating antibody against staphylococcal ribitol teichoic acid are frequently observed in patients with endocarditis and other deep-seated infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus. A negative or low (<1:2) titer is important in suggesting an absence of underlying staphylococcal disease.
