Autoimmune Pernicious Anaemia (PA) Test
The Intrinsic Factor Ig test detect both types of autoimmune intrinsic factor antibodies. The test is performed on a blood sample which is sent to the laboratory where it is separated into cells and plasma. The plasma is tested to see if there are elevated levels of Intrinsic factor IgG antibodies present.
There is such a vide range of conditions associated with Candida overgrowth that accurate diagnosis of Candidiasis cannot be made on the basis of symptoms alone. The only way to diagnose a Candida overgrowth is to carry out specific test aimed at detecting the presence of the organism.
Testing is simple and straightforward and involves screening a finger-prick sample of blood for antibodies to tissue Transglutaminase (tTG)- the key autoantibody associated with CD- using an ELISA - based laboratory method.
Symptoms of this type of food intolerance are often delayed for many hours or even days and for this reason it is often hard to identify the problem foods. The detection to food-specific IgG antibodies through the use of Genarrayt Microarray ELISa technology.
Helicobacter Pylori Screen
Helicobacter pylori Screen is an ELISA that detects IgG antibodies to H. pylori in the patient`s blood. The test is sensitive enough to detect an infection an it is also a useful tool to monitor treatment since H. pylori antibody levels decrease with a successful eradication therapy.
Samples are subjected to a microscopy technique that utilises Optimized Parasite Recovery (OPR) in order to ensure that all clinically relevant parasites will be identified. This process involves combining multiple stool specimens (taken over 3 consecutive days) for intestinal ova and parasite examination, as opposed to only using an individual sample for evaluation.
Citrullinated protein antibody (CPA) test - This test detects Citrullinated Protein Antibodies (CPA) which has been recently shown to be highly specific for RA and Rhematoid factor IgM and IgA test - This test detects Rheumatoid Factors (RFs) which are autoantibodies directed against the Fc region of human IgG. Ellevated RFs are found in 70-90 % of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
