Immunohistochemistry Melan-A Test

500 د.إ

-9%

The Immunohistochemistry Melan-A Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure designed to detect the presence of Melan-A antigen in tissue samples. Melan-A is a protein commonly found in melanocytes, the cells responsible for producing melanin, which gives skin its color. This test plays a crucial role in the diagnosis and study of melanomas, a type of skin cancer originating from melanocytes, as well as in identifying certain types of benign nevi (moles).

Performed in state-of-the-art facilities like DNA Labs UAE, the test involves using antibodies targeted against the Melan-A antigen to stain tissue sections. These antibodies bind to the antigen if present, and with the application of specific detection systems, the bound antibodies can be visualized, indicating the presence of Melan-A protein. This visualization aids pathologists in assessing the sample for diagnostic or research purposes.

The cost of the Immunohistochemistry Melan-A Test at DNA Labs UAE is 500 AED. The test is executed with precision and care by experienced professionals, ensuring reliable results. It’s an essential tool in the dermatological and oncological fields, offering critical insights into the nature of skin lesions and contributing to the effective management and treatment of skin cancer patients.

Test Details:

The Melan-A test is an immunohistochemistry test used to detect the presence of Melan-A protein in tissue samples. Melan-A is a protein that is primarily expressed in melanocytes, the cells responsible for producing the pigment melanin.

The Melan-A test is commonly used in the diagnosis of melanoma, a type of skin cancer that originates from melanocytes. It helps to differentiate between melanoma and other types of skin cancers or benign skin lesions.

During the test, a tissue sample is taken from the suspected area of melanoma or other skin lesion. The sample is then processed and embedded in paraffin wax. Thin sections of the tissue are cut and placed on glass slides. These slides are then treated with specific antibodies that bind to the Melan-A protein if it is present in the tissue. The bound antibodies are then visualized using a detection system, usually involving a colored dye, which allows the pathologist to identify the presence and distribution of Melan-A protein in the tissue.

The results of the Melan-A test can help pathologists in confirming a diagnosis of melanoma and determining the extent of the disease. It can also aid in the classification of melanoma subtypes, which can have prognostic and treatment implications.

It is important to note that the Melan-A test is just one of several tests used in the diagnosis of melanoma. Other tests, such as S-100 protein and HMB-45, are often performed in conjunction with Melan-A to provide a more comprehensive evaluation of melanoma.
