Parietal Cell Antibody IFA in Dilutions Test

700 د.إ

-10%

The Parietal Cell Antibody IFA in Dilutions Test is a specialized diagnostic procedure aimed at detecting the presence of antibodies against parietal cells in the blood. Parietal cells, found in the stomach lining, are crucial for the production of stomach acid and intrinsic factor, the latter being essential for vitamin B12 absorption. The presence of these antibodies is often associated with autoimmune conditions, such as autoimmune gastritis and pernicious anemia, which can lead to a reduction in stomach acid and an impairment in vitamin B12 absorption, respectively.

This test employs the Indirect Fluorescent Antibody (IFA) technique in various dilutions to accurately quantify the level of antibodies, providing crucial information for the diagnosis and management of associated autoimmune disorders. The procedure involves taking a blood sample from the patient, which is then processed and analyzed in a laboratory setting.

DNA Labs UAE offers this test for a cost of 700 AED. The facility is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and staffed by experienced professionals, ensuring high-quality diagnostic services. The test results from DNA Labs UAE can play a critical role in the timely diagnosis and effective management of conditions related to the presence of parietal cell antibodies, facilitating personalized treatment plans for affected individuals.

PARIETAL CELL ANTIBODY IFA IN DILUTIONS Test

At DNA Labs UAE, we offer the PARIETAL CELL ANTIBODY IFA IN DILUTIONS Test for the diagnosis of autoimmune conditions such as autoimmune gastritis and pernicious anemia. This test helps detect the presence of antibodies against parietal cells in the body, which are found in the lining of the stomach and produce hydrochloric acid and intrinsic factor.

Test Details

The Parietal Cell Antibody (PCA) Indirect Immunofluorescence Assay (IFA) is used in this test. The patient’s serum is diluted and incubated with a substrate containing parietal cells. If the patient has antibodies against parietal cells, these antibodies will bind to the parietal cells in the substrate. The test is visualized using a fluorescent microscope, and the presence of fluorescence indicates the presence of parietal cell antibodies.

The dilutions used in the test refer to the dilution factor of the patient’s serum. The serum is typically diluted in a series of steps, allowing for the detection of antibodies even at low concentrations.

Interpretation and Further Evaluation

The Parietal Cell Antibody IFA in dilutions test is an important component of the diagnostic workup for autoimmune conditions. However, it should be interpreted in conjunction with other clinical findings and tests. A positive result does not necessarily indicate the presence of disease, and further evaluation may be required.

Test Details

The Parietal Cell Antibody (PCA) Indirect Immunofluorescence Assay (IFA) is a diagnostic test used to detect the presence of antibodies against parietal cells in the body. Parietal cells are found in the lining of the stomach and produce hydrochloric acid and intrinsic factor.

The test involves diluting the patient’s serum and incubating it with a substrate that contains parietal cells. If the patient has antibodies against parietal cells, these antibodies will bind to the parietal cells in the substrate. The test is then visualized using a fluorescent microscope, and if fluorescence is observed, it indicates the presence of parietal cell antibodies.

The dilutions used in the test refer to the dilution factor of the patient’s serum. The serum is typically diluted in a series of steps, such as 1:20, 1:40, 1:80, etc. This allows for the detection of antibodies even at low concentrations.

The Parietal Cell Antibody IFA in dilutions test is primarily used in the diagnosis of autoimmune conditions such as autoimmune gastritis and pernicious anemia. The presence of parietal cell antibodies is associated with these conditions and can help in confirming the diagnosis.

It is important to note that the Parietal Cell Antibody IFA test is just one component of the diagnostic workup and should be interpreted in conjunction with other clinical findings and tests. A positive result does not necessarily indicate the presence of disease, and further evaluation may be required.
