5291 – DotDiver ANA 18
The DotDiver ANA 18 is a qualitative line immunoassay for the determination of IgG antibodies against nuclear and cytoplasmic antigens (dsDNA, nucleosomes, Sm, Sm/RNP, ribosomal P0, histones, U1 snRNP, SS-A/Ro60, SS-A/Ro52, SS-B, Scl-70, PM/Scl-100, CENP-A/B, PCNA, Jo-1, M2, DFS-70 and f-actin) in human serum. The DotDiver ANA 18 is intended as an aid in the diagnosis of systemic inflammatory rheumatic diseases in conjunction with other clinical and laboratory findings.
The detection of antibodies in patient samples is well established and plays an essential role in the diagnosis of systemic autoimmune diseases. The appearance of antibodies directed against components of the cell nucleus are characteristic features of systemic autoimmune diseases, especially systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Sjögren’s syndrome, progressive systemic sclerosis (PSS), mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD), rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and dermatomyositis.
Line immunoassays are frequently used for the determination of specific antibodies directed against multiple antigens. The test strips are coated with various antigens in consistent intervals. If antibodies are present in the patient´s sample, they bind to the respective antigens. A secondary antibody conjugated with the enzyme peroxidase detects the generated immune complexes. A colorless substrate is converted into a colored, insoluble product. The signal intensity of the precipitated reaction product is proportional to the antibody activity in the sample.
The DotDiver ANA 18 is designed for semi-automated use with the DotDiver instrument.
The GA Generic Assays DotDiver2.0 is a fully automated processor of Line and Dot immunoassays. The small footprint renders the device an ideal solution for laboratories with small space. With a unique software design, the device provides a completely hands-free experience for quantitative, semi-quantitative and qualitative testing via repeated diving of the antigen coated strips into the ready to use cartridges. This special setup provides an optimal reaction environment with reduced assay processing and result analysis time for up to 24 different tests or samples simultaneously.
