TORCH test is usually performed on the 1st prenatal visit &  later during pregnancy if clinical condition demands to screen for above pathogens. TORCH-13 is a group of tests to detect presence of past or recent infections by i.e., Toxoplasma(T), Rubella(R), Cytomegalovirus(C), Herpes Simplex (H) virus 1 & 2 by detecting IgG & IgM antibodies against them.

Frequently Asked Questions

TORCH test is done in pregnant females during their first visit to detect their immune status against Toxoplasma, Rubella, CMV and Herpes. A primary infection during pregnancy can lead to transplacental transmission, foetal infection and miscarriage or foetal defects. The risk of foetal defects is highest when the infection is acquired during the first trimester

TORCH test measures IgG & IgM antibodies against Toxoplasma, Rubella, CMV and Herpes. If IgG antibodies against toxoplasma, CMV, Rubella are positive then avid antibody test is carried out to detemine time of infection

TORCH test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer

Absence of IgG antibodies suggest lack of immunity/ exposure against these agents. These patients can acquire infection later
If IgG is positive then avidity testing is done to find the apx. time of infection. Avid antibodies take around 6 months to develop
