What is the Epstein Barr (VCA) IgM Test?

The Epstein Barr Virus VCA IgM (EBV VCA IgM) test detects antibodies against the Viral Capsid Antigen (VCA). EBV causes mononucleosis, a disease characterized by fatigue, sore throat, fever, swollen lymph nodes, and a swollen spleen, among other symptoms. The virus is discovered in the mouth of infected people, and it is incredibly contagious.

Anti-VCA IgM antibodies are detectable only 4-6 weeks following infection with the virus. In the lack of symptoms in an immunocompromised person who has been in close touch with the infected person, the test can be ordered as an additional precaution.

Why done? 

  • To aid in the diagnosis of infectious mononucleosis.
  • To distinguish between an Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection and another illness with symptoms similar to the EBV infection.
  • To assist in determining the likelihood of contracting EBV infection.

If you have mono symptoms, your doctor may request this test. They are:

  • Fever 
  • Enlarged lymph nodes
  • Headache 
  • Fatigue
  • Swollen neck


You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein. 

How does one prepare for the test? 

No preparation is needed.
