-10%

The “Endomysial Antibody IgA IFA in Dilutions Test” is a diagnostic procedure used to detect the presence of endomysial antibodies (EMA) in the blood, which are primarily of the IgA subtype. This test is performed through the Indirect Immunofluorescence Assay (IFA) method, where blood samples are diluted and then examined under a microscope for specific fluorescence patterns that indicate the presence of these antibodies. The presence of endomysial antibodies is a strong indicator of celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder that affects the small intestine in response to gluten consumption.

The test is priced at 810 AED and is available at DNA Labs UAE, a leading diagnostic center known for its comprehensive range of medical testing services. DNA Labs UAE is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and staffed by highly trained professionals, ensuring accurate and reliable test results. This test is crucial for individuals experiencing symptoms suggestive of celiac disease or for those with a family history of the condition, as early detection and management can significantly improve quality of life.

Test Details

The endomysial antibody IgA IFA in dilutions test is a diagnostic test used to detect the presence of antibodies in the blood that are associated with celiac disease. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder where the ingestion of gluten triggers an immune response that damages the lining of the small intestine.

The test involves diluting the patient’s blood sample and then incubating it with a substrate that contains endomysial antigen. If the patient has celiac disease and has developed antibodies against the endomysial antigen, these antibodies will bind to the antigen in the substrate. This binding is then visualized using fluorescent microscopy.

The test is typically performed using a 1:5 dilution of the patient’s blood sample. A positive result is indicated by the presence of bright green fluorescence in a reticular or granular pattern, indicating the presence of endomysial antibodies. A negative result is indicated by the absence of fluorescence.

The endomysial antibody IgA IFA in dilutions test is highly specific for celiac disease and is considered the gold standard for diagnosing the condition. However, it is important to note that a positive result does not confirm a diagnosis of celiac disease, and further testing, such as a small intestine biopsy, may be required for confirmation.
