The assays produced by Phadia, now Thermo Fisher Scientific, are of excellent specificity and sensitivity, but some samples tested in a routine laboratory require further analysis. For this purpose, we have established a service laboratory which is accessible for all autoimmunity customers worldwide. Your samples can be sent to our reference laboratory to find explanations for atypical or questionable results.
Additionally, the serum service comprises testing and evaluation of special sera for purposes of:
- Application of various methods for the autoantibody determination of the respective serum.
- Comment on the data obtained by the internal investigation.
- Literature package about the issue of interest on request.
Please note that a definite clinical diagnosis must not be based on serological results, but should only be made by the physician after the evaluation of all clinical and laboratory findings.
We make the determination of rare autoantibody parameters more advantageous and economic for you.
Customers may send samples to the service lab for the determination of seldom requested autoantibody parameters otherwise too costly and time-consuming to complete in your lab.
If you’re interested in collaborating with us (e.g. setting up a clinical trial) please contact your local Phadia, now Thermo Fisher Scientific, Office to discuss the details prior to starting a trial.
