Multiplex Flow Immunoassay

Test Usage

Beta-2-GPI autoantibodies are found in patients with antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) and are associated with increased risk of venous and arterial thrombosis and thrombocytopenia. Beta-2-GPI autoantibodies are found only in patients with autoimmune diseases, while cardiolipin autoantibodies can be transiently found in infectious diseases.

Reference Range *

B2GP1 IgG: <20 U/mL (Negative); B2GP1 IgM: <20 U/mL (Negative); B2GP1 IgA: <20 U/mL (Negative).

* Reference ranges may change over time. Please refer to the original patient report when evaluating results.
