Test ID: FSULF    
Sulfatide Autoantibody Test

Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference


Detection of sulfatide autoantibodies was determined by the

evaluation of IgM antibodies to histone and sulfatide

antigens individually.  Sulfatide specific autoantibodies

to IgG were evaluated by analysis with GM1 and sulfatide

antigens each.  All analyses were performed by ELISA

methodology, analytical values were reviewed to establish

a serological profile in order to determine the conclusive

diagnostic results.

This testing service is covered by U.S. Patent Number 5,443,952.

Day(s) and Time(s) Test Performed Outlines the days and times the test is performed. This field reflects the day and time the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time required before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means assays are performed several times during the day.

Upon receipt

Analytic Time Defines the amount of time it takes the laboratory to setup and perform the test. This is defined in number of days. The shortest interval of time expressed is "same day/1 day," which means the results may be available the same day that the sample is received in the testing laboratory. One day means results are available 1 day after the sample is received in the laboratory.

7-14 days

Maximum Laboratory Time Defines the maximum time from specimen receipt at Mayo Medical Laboratories until the release of the test result

9 - 18 days

Specimen Retention Time Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded

12 months

Performing Laboratory Location The location of the laboratory that performs the test
