-10%

The Islet Cell Antibody in Dilutions Test is a specialized laboratory examination aimed at detecting the presence of islet cell antibodies in the blood. These antibodies are significant because they target the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas, often leading to autoimmune disorders such as Type 1 diabetes. By identifying these antibodies early, healthcare providers can assess the risk of developing or monitor the progression of autoimmune diabetes.

The test involves taking a blood sample from the patient, which is then analyzed in a laboratory setting to detect the presence and concentration of islet cell antibodies. The process of dilutions helps in determining the precise level of antibodies, which is crucial for accurate diagnosis and management plans.

At DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility known for its advanced diagnostic services, the Islet Cell Antibody in Dilutions Test is offered at a cost of 780 AED. This price reflects the intricate nature of the test, including the use of sophisticated technology and expertise required to accurately identify and quantify the antibodies. Patients choosing DNA Labs UAE for this test can expect reliable results, which are essential for the timely and effective management of conditions related to the presence of islet cell antibodies.

Test Details

The Islet Cell Antibody (ICA) test is used to detect the presence of autoantibodies against islet cells in the pancreas. These autoantibodies are commonly found in individuals with type 1 diabetes and can help in the diagnosis of the disease.

The ICA test is typically performed using dilutions of the patient’s serum. Dilutions are made by mixing the patient’s serum with a diluent, usually a buffered solution. This is done to reduce the concentration of the serum and ensure accurate results.

The dilutions used in the ICA test may vary depending on the laboratory and the specific assay being used. Common dilutions include 1:10, 1:20, 1:40, and 1:80. The dilutions are prepared by adding a specific volume of the patient’s serum to a specific volume of the diluent.

Once the dilutions are prepared, they are added to wells on a testing plate or slide that contains islet cells. The autoantibodies in the patient’s serum will bind to the islet cells if present. The presence of bound autoantibodies is then detected using a secondary antibody that is labeled with a fluorescent or enzymatic marker. This allows for the visualization of the bound autoantibodies under a microscope or through a color change reaction.

The results of the ICA test are typically reported as a titer, which indicates the highest dilution at which the autoantibodies are still detectable. For example, a titer of 1:80 means that the autoantibodies were still detectable at a dilution of 1:80 but not at higher dilutions.

It is important to note that the ICA test is not specific to type 1 diabetes and can also be positive in other autoimmune conditions or even in some healthy individuals. Therefore, the ICA test is usually used in combination with other tests and clinical findings to make a diagnosis.
