The Biopsy Nerve with Special Stains Test is a diagnostic procedure performed to evaluate the health and integrity of nerve tissues. This test involves taking a small sample of nerve tissue from the body, which is then subjected to a series of special staining techniques. These techniques enhance the visibility of the nerve’s microscopic structures, allowing pathologists to detect abnormalities such as inflammation, damage, or disease processes affecting the nerves.

The test is particularly useful for diagnosing conditions that affect nerve function, including neuropathies, vasculitis, and degenerative nerve diseases. By identifying the specific characteristics and extent of nerve damage, the test aids in guiding treatment decisions and monitoring disease progression or response to therapy.

At DNA Labs UAE, the Biopsy Nerve with Special Stains Test is offered for a cost of 750 AED. DNA Labs UAE is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and staffed by experienced professionals, ensuring high-quality diagnostic services. The test is conducted following strict protocols to ensure accuracy and reliability of results, providing essential information for the effective management of neurological conditions.

Test Details

Biopsy of a nerve with special stains involves the collection of a small tissue sample from a nerve for further examination under a microscope. Special stains are then used to highlight specific structures or substances within the nerve tissue.

Special stains commonly used in nerve biopsies include:

  1. Hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stain: This is a routine stain that helps visualize the overall structure and cellular components of the nerve tissue. It highlights cell nuclei in blue-purple (hematoxylin) and cytoplasm in pink (eosin).
  2. Luxol fast blue (LFB) stain: This stain is used to identify myelin, a fatty substance that insulates nerve fibers. Myelin appears blue in color, allowing for the visualization of nerve fiber tracts and their myelin sheaths.
  3. Periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) stain: PAS stain helps identify glycogen, mucin, and other carbohydrates in nerve tissue. It can be useful in diagnosing certain nerve disorders, such as amyloidosis.
  4. Immunohistochemistry (IHC): This technique involves using specific antibodies that bind to certain proteins or molecules of interest within the nerve tissue. It helps identify specific cell types, markers, or pathological changes associated with various nerve diseases.

By using these special stains, pathologists can gain a better understanding of the structure, composition, and abnormalities present in the nerve tissue. This information can aid in the diagnosis and management of nerve disorders, such as neuropathies, nerve tumors, or inflammatory conditions.
