Responding to the need for autoimmunity blood testing

Turning to efficient autoimmunity testing, tools can have major impact on a physician’s diagnostic decision, making an equally major difference in patient care.

These tools can help detect a condition in an early phase of development, meaning that patients can get valuable help living their lives to the fullest sooner. And for children already struggling to cope with gastrointestinal pain and nausea, autoimmunity testing can mean a life more quickly returned to normal.

And for a professional losing weeks at a time to debilitating painful joints, the test can be a valuable support in the diagnostic process and offer guidance towards optimal treatment.

EliA – highly advanced test technology

At the Centre of Excellence in Freiburg, Germany, advanced techniques are used such as recombinant gene technology to develop the latest in standardized, precice, reliable and easy-to-use diagnostic tests.

Autoantibody tests for most common autoimmune diseases, e.g., rheumatoid arthritis, celiac disease and connective tissue diseases are offered in the fully automated EliA system.

EliA tests performed on the Phadia Laboratory Systems provide results fast, which helps prevent a lengthy diagnostic period filled with ineffective treatments and worsening health. And that can result in making life a lot easier for someone living with an autoimmune disease.


As in all diagnostic testing, the diagnosis is made by the physican based on both test results and the patient history.
