This test is otherwise known as a Paul Bunnell test.

Glandular fever (also known as infectious mononucleosis) is an infectious disease caused by a virus called Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Glandular fever is a common illness and is sometimes called the ‘kissing disease’ because the virus is spread through saliva and commonly affects teenagers and young adults.
Glandular fever can be diagnosed with a simple blood test called a monospot test, which tests for antibodies to the Epstein-Barr virus. However, the mono spot test may not detect the infection during the first week of the illness.

MUMS GPs may also order another blood test called a full blood count (FBC) to check your white cell count. An increase in white blood cells (lymphocytes), particularly atypical lymphocytes, can be associated with glandular fever.
