ANA Screen, IFA, with Reflex to Titer and Pattern/Lupus Panel 2
Order an ANA test to detect antinuclear antibodies (ANA) in your blood. While your immune system normally makes antibodies to fight against infection in the body, ANAs often attack the body’s normal tissues. This can point to an autoimmune disorder, such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis. An ANA test is used to detect an autoimmune reaction by measuring the amount and pattern of antibodies in your blood.
An ANA test can’t confirm a specific diagnosis, but it can help your healthcare provider rule out some conditions. An ANA test can also help your healthcare provider understand whether you need additional testing necessary for diagnosis.
