For the development of a Point of Care IVD test kit for acute phase disease detection against a variety of bacterial and viral infections. Phase one includes 100 clinical diagnosed positive and 200 clinically "normal" serum and whole blood matched specimens for specificity and sensitivity determination for each marker. The positive samples must be IgM positive using any FDA cleared ELISA test kit. The negatives samples must be negative for IgM.
