Kallestad® Autoimmune IFA Rodent Tissue Kits are indirect fluorescent antibody (IFA) assays for the detection and semi-quantitation of human autoantibodies. Each kit includes a universal procedure for HEp-2, MSK and Crithidia luciliae. High-quality rodent tissue sections ensure high sensitivity and specification; manufacturing is standardized and rigidly controlled. All controls are ready to use; wells are spaced for use with a multichannel pipette and automation options are available.
Bio-Rad's rodent tissue substrates can be used to detect anti-mitochondrial antibodies (AMA), anti-smooth muscle antibodies (ASMA), anti-parietal cell antibodies (APCA) and other organ-specific antibodies. The use of this tissue section minimizes interference from blood group isoantibodies while providing easily discernible fluorescent patterns.
