80300:PRECIPITATING ANTIBODIES, PANEL OF 12
Methodology:Immunodiffusion (ID)
Edit Date:6/11/2010
Performed:Monday-Friday
Released:12 days after setup at PeaceHealth Laboratories’ reference lab
CPT Code:86331-90 x12
Specimen Collection Details
Collection:One 7.5 mL serum separator tube (SST).
Handling:Allow to clot, centrifuge and separate serum from cells and pour into a plastic vial. Refrigerate. Indicate profile to be run.
Standard Volume:5 mL serum.
Minimum Volume:2 mL serum.
Transport:Refrigerated.
Comments:Precipitin panels demonstrate the presence of precipitating antibody (predominantly IgG and IgM) by immunodiffusion (Ouchterlony) in gel medium. Most clinicallly significant results occur when multiple and sharp precipitin lines are found. a trace precipitin band is rarely important and a weak band is equivocal.
See patient report.
