-10%

The Striated Skeletal Muscle Antibody (ASKA) IFA in Dilutions Test is a specialized diagnostic assay used to detect the presence of autoantibodies against striated muscle tissue in the blood. This test is particularly important in the diagnosis and management of autoimmune disorders, such as Myasthenia Gravis, where the immune system mistakenly targets and damages muscle tissue, leading to muscle weakness and fatigue. The test employs the Indirect Fluorescent Antibody (IFA) technique, which involves the use of fluorescent dyes to visualize the antibodies, allowing for the precise quantification and assessment of their presence in various dilutions of the patient’s serum.

Performed at DNA Labs UAE, a leading facility known for its advanced diagnostic services, the ASKA IFA in Dilutions Test is conducted under strict quality controls to ensure accuracy and reliability of results. The test cost is set at 700 AED, reflecting the sophisticated nature of the testing process and the valuable insights it provides into the patient’s immune response against skeletal muscles. By identifying the presence and concentration of striated skeletal muscle antibodies, this test plays a crucial role in guiding the treatment and management of autoimmune neuromuscular disorders, contributing to better patient outcomes.

Test Details

The STRIATED/SKELETAL MUSCLE ANTIBODY (ASKA) IFA IN DILUTIONS test is a laboratory test that is used to detect the presence of antibodies against striated or skeletal muscle in a patient’s blood sample.

This test is performed using a technique called indirect immunofluorescence assay (IFA). In this test, the patient’s blood sample is diluted and incubated with a substrate that contains striated or skeletal muscle tissue. If antibodies against these tissues are present in the blood sample, they will bind to the muscle tissue in the substrate.

After incubation, the substrate is washed to remove any unbound antibodies. Then, a fluorescently labeled secondary antibody is added to the substrate. This secondary antibody will bind to any antibodies that are bound to the muscle tissue.

Finally, the substrate is examined under a fluorescence microscope. If antibodies against striated or skeletal muscle are present in the patient’s blood sample, they will appear as bright fluorescent spots or streaks on the muscle tissue in the substrate.

The results of the test are reported as the dilution at which the antibodies are detected. A positive result indicates the presence of antibodies against striated or skeletal muscle, which can be indicative of certain autoimmune or muscle-related disorders, such as myositis or muscular dystrophy.

It is important to note that this test is just one tool in the diagnostic process, and the results should be interpreted in conjunction with the patient’s symptoms, medical history, and other laboratory tests. A healthcare provider will be able to provide further guidance and interpretation of the test results.
