Mitochondrial Antibody AMA IFA in Dilutions Test

-9%

The Mitochondrial Antibody AMA IFA in Dilutions Test is a specialized diagnostic examination performed to detect the presence of mitochondrial antibodies (AMA) in the blood. These antibodies are often associated with autoimmune diseases, most notably primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), a chronic liver disease. The test employs the Indirect Fluorescent Antibody (IFA) technique, which involves diluting the blood sample and exposing it to antigens to observe if antibodies bind to them under a fluorescence microscope. This method provides a qualitative assessment of the presence of AMAs and can be crucial in diagnosing and managing conditions related to mitochondrial abnormalities.

At DNA Labs UAE, this test is offered at a cost of 680 AED. The laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and staffed by experienced professionals, ensuring accurate and reliable results. The test is conducted under stringent quality controls, making DNA Labs UAE a trusted choice for patients and healthcare providers seeking comprehensive diagnostics.

Test Details

The Mitochondrial Antibody (AMA) IFA in Dilutions test is a laboratory test used to detect the presence of antibodies against mitochondria in a person’s blood. Mitochondria are small structures found in cells that are responsible for producing energy.

In certain autoimmune diseases, such as primary biliary cholangitis (PBC), the immune system mistakenly attacks the mitochondria in the body. The test involves diluting the patient’s blood serum and then exposing it to a substrate that contains mitochondria. If the patient has antibodies against mitochondria, they will bind to the mitochondria in the substrate. This binding can be visualized using a fluorescent dye or other detection methods.

The test is performed using an immunofluorescence assay (IFA) technique, which involves labeling the antibodies with a fluorescent marker to make them visible under a microscope. The dilutions of the patient’s serum allow for a more accurate detection of antibodies at different levels of concentration.

A positive result on the Mitochondrial Antibody (AMA) IFA in Dilutions test indicates the presence of antibodies against mitochondria, suggesting an autoimmune condition such as PBC. However, it is important to note that a positive result does not necessarily mean the patient has PBC, as these antibodies can also be found in other autoimmune diseases or even in healthy individuals.

Further diagnostic tests and evaluation by a healthcare professional are usually necessary to confirm the diagnosis and determine the appropriate treatment plan.
