Antinuclear Antibodies(ANA) IUIS Reference Standards
A message from the Autoantibody Standardization Committee
One of the goals of the IUIS Autoantibody Standardization Committee (ASC) is to help laboratories improve standardization and quality control of testing of anti-nuclear and related autoantibodies. As part of this effort, the ASC, in cooperation with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) USA, is making reference standards available for autoantibody specificities through PSG. In addition to the same 17 reference reagents previously available from CDC, new reference reagents will be generated and distributed by PSG. Two new references are the anti-mitochondrial and anti-rods/rings autoantibodies – for details, please see publication (Calise SJ, Zheng B, Hasegawa T, Satoh M, Isailovic N, Ceribelli A, Andrade LEC, Boylan K, Cavazzana I, Fritzler MJ, Garcia de la Torre I, Hiepe F, Kohl K, Selmi C, Shoenfeld Y, Tincani A, Chan EKL. Reference standards for the detection of anti-mitochondrial and anti-rods/rings autoantibodies. Clin Chem Lab Med. 2018:in press. Reprint request send to SCalise@dental.ufl.edu or email@example.com).
*Availability is limited to 1 vial of each ANA reference per laboratory.
