CDSP - Specimen: Celiac Disease Serology Cascade

Test Catalog

Test ID: CDSP    
Celiac Disease Serology Cascade

Testing Algorithm Delineates situation(s) when tests are added to the initial order. This includes reflex and additional tests.

If IgA is age-specified normal, then tissue transglutaminase (tTG) IgA will be performed at an additional charge.

If tTG IgA is equivocal, then endomysial antibodies IgA and deamidated gliadin antibody IgA will be performed at an additional charge.

If IgA is greater or equal to 1.0 mg/dL, but lower than age-specified normal, then tTG IgA, tTG IgG, deamidated gliadin IgA, and deamidated gliadin IgG will be performed at an additional charge.

If IgA is below detection (<1.0 mg/dL), then tTG IgG and deamidated gliadin IgG will be performed at an additional charge.

Specimen Type Describes the specimen type needed for testing

Serum

Specimen Required Defines the optimal specimen. This field describes the type of specimen required to perform the test and the preferred volume to complete testing. The volume allows automated processing, fastest throughput and, when indicated, repeat or reflex testing.

Specimen Minimum Volume Defines the amount of specimen required to perform an assay once, including instrument and container dead space. Submitting the minimum specimen volume makes it impossible to repeat the test or perform confirmatory or perform reflex testing. In some situations, a minimum specimen volume may result in a QNS (quantity not sufficient) result, requiring a second specimen to be collected.
