Friedreich Ataxia, Frataxin, Quantitative, Whole Blood
Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference
The immunoassay utilizes frataxin-specific monoclonal antibodies bound to Luminex microspheres as capture antibodies and biotinylated frataxin-specific polyclonal antibodies as detection antibodies. Streptavidin-phycoerythrin attaches to the biotin and when exposed to light at 352 nM emits a photon that is measured and that signal is used to determine the amount of frataxin in the sample.(Deutsch EC, et al: A rapid, noninvasive immunoassay for frataxin: utility in assessment of Friedreich ataxia.

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.
