The Alpha-1-Acid Glycoprotein Test is a diagnostic procedure performed to measure the levels of alpha-1-acid glycoprotein (AGP) in the blood. AGP is a protein that plays a significant role in the body’s immune response, acting as a transport protein for various substances, including hormones, drugs, and steroids, and plays a part in the inflammatory response. Elevated or decreased levels of AGP can indicate various conditions, including infections, inflammation, and certain types of cancer. Understanding AGP levels can help healthcare providers diagnose and monitor these conditions more effectively.

ALPHA-1-ACID GLYCOPROTEIN Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the ALPHA-1-ACID GLYCOPROTEIN (AGP) test at a cost of AED 970.0. This blood test measures the levels of alpha-1-acid glycoprotein in the body, which is a protein produced by the liver in response to inflammation or infection.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

The AGP test is often used to monitor and diagnose certain medical conditions, such as infections, inflammatory diseases, and cancer. It can help determine the severity of the condition and guide treatment decisions.

Test Components and Sample Condition

The test requires a sample of 2 mL (0.5 mL min.) serum from 1 Red Top (No Additive) tube. It is important not to use SST gel barrier tubes. Overnight fasting is preferred, and the sample should be shipped refrigerated or frozen. Additionally, a duly filled Test Send Out Consent Form is mandatory.

Report Delivery and Method

The sample should be sent by the 7th of the month, and the report will be delivered after 2-3 weeks. The test is conducted using the Fixed Rate Time Nephelometry method.

Test Type and Doctor

The AGP test is categorized as an Acute Phase Reactant test and is usually performed by a Hematologist or Oncologist.

Pre Test Information

Overnight fasting is preferred before taking the AGP test. Additionally, a duly filled Test Send Out Consent Form is mandatory.

Test Details

The AGP test is a valuable tool in monitoring and diagnosing various medical conditions. It involves drawing a blood sample from a vein in the arm, which is then sent to a laboratory for analysis. Results are typically available within a few days.

The normal range for AGP levels can vary depending on the laboratory, but it typically falls between 0.5 to 1.2 g/L. Higher levels of AGP may indicate inflammation or infection, while lower levels may suggest a reduced inflammatory response.

It’s important to note that the AGP test is just one tool used in conjunction with other tests and clinical evaluations to assess a person’s health. The results should be interpreted by a healthcare professional in the context of the individual’s medical history and symptoms.
