The “Histopathology Direct Immunofluorescence (DIF) Skin Conjunctival Biopsy Panel Test” is a specialized diagnostic procedure available at DNA Labs UAE, designed to identify various skin and conjunctival conditions at a molecular level. This test employs the direct immunofluorescence technique, which involves applying fluorescently labeled antibodies directly onto a biopsy sample to detect specific antigens. It is particularly useful for diagnosing autoimmune diseases, inflammatory conditions, and infections affecting the skin and eye conjunctiva. The process involves taking a small tissue sample from the affected area, which is then examined under a microscope using the DIF method. This allows for the visualization of immune deposits in the tissues, providing valuable information on the presence and distribution of specific antigens. The cost of this comprehensive test is 640 AED. Conducted in the advanced facilities of DNA Labs UAE, this test is a critical tool for clinicians in the accurate diagnosis and management of complex dermatological and ophthalmological conditions.

Symptoms and Diagnosis

The Histopathology Direct Immunofluorescence (DIF) Skin/Conjunctival Biopsy Panel test is a diagnostic procedure used to examine skin or conjunctival tissue samples for the presence of specific antibodies and immune complexes. This test is primarily used to diagnose autoimmune diseases that affect the skin or conjunctiva, such as pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid, or systemic lupus erythematosus.

Test Details

The Histopathology Direct Immunofluorescence (DIF) Skin/Conjunctival Biopsy Panel test is a diagnostic procedure used to examine skin or conjunctival tissue samples for the presence of specific antibodies and immune complexes. This test is primarily used to diagnose autoimmune diseases that affect the skin or conjunctiva, such as pemphigus, bullous pemphigoid, or systemic lupus erythematosus.

During the DIF test, the tissue sample is treated with fluorescent-labeled antibodies that bind to specific antigens or immune complexes. The sample is then examined under a microscope equipped with a fluorescence detector. If the target antigens or immune complexes are present in the tissue, they will emit a characteristic fluorescence signal, indicating a positive result.

The DIF Skin/Conjunctival Biopsy Panel test can provide valuable information about the underlying cause of skin or conjunctival lesions, helping to guide appropriate treatment and management decisions. It is typically performed by dermatologists or ophthalmologists with expertise in immunofluorescence microscopy.
