INTERPRETATION
 <=0.90              NEGATIVE: No detectable antibody to
                     measles by the Automated Multiplex test.
                     Such individuals are susceptable to
                     primary infection.

 0.91 -1.09          EQUIVOCAL: Patient should be retested in
                     10-14 days.

 >=1.10              POSITIVE: Indicates presence of detect-
                     able antibody to measles by the Automated
                     Multiplex test. Indicative of current or
                     previous infection. In the absence of 
                     current clinical symptoms may indicate
                     immunity.
Notes: Test is appropriate for determining the immune status of a patient.
