The TORCH Combo test is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay for the qualitative detection of antibodies (IgG and IgM) to Rubella virus (Rubella), Cytomegalovirus (CMV), Toxoplasma gondii (Toxo), and Herpes simplex virus (HSV) in serum or plasma to aid in the diagnosis of TORCH.

TORCH is an acronym for a group of infectious diseases that, while infecting pregnant women may cause birth defects in their newborns. TORCH stands for 4 different infections that can adversely affect pregnant women and the fetus, newborn children including birth and often leading to abortion. The four infections are Rubella, CMV, Toxo, and HSV. Infections caused by TORCH is the major cause of BOH (Bad Obstetric History). Microcephaly, hydrocephaly, seizures and psychomotor retardation accompany these malformations.
