Multiplex Flow Immunoassay
The ANA screen test detects autoantibodies to 11 clinically relevant antibodies (dsDNA, SS-A, SS-B, Sm, RNP, SmRNP, Scl-70, Jo-1, Centromere B, Ribosomal P, and Chromatin). A negative result means that the patient’s serum shows no reactivity for these common antibodies associated with connective tissue diseases. See also: Extractable Nuclear Antibodies.
* Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results.
Collect specimen in SST tube. Centrifuge, aliquot serum into a plastic vial and refrigerate up to 7 days. Please note if ANA by Multiplexed Immunoassay with Reflex to IFA Titer and Pattern is desired (ANA2).
