Screening panels for a more confident diagnosis

Screening panels are often the first step in an autoimmune diagnosis. Quest offers a comprehensive menu of autoimmune panels that incorporate reflex testing to expedite diagnostic assessment without the need for additional visits and follow-up orders, helping to contain costs and speed time to diagnosis.

ANA screen with reflexes

The ANA, IFA, Cascade and Rheumatoid Arthritis Panel 2, with Reflexes from Quest Diagnostics provides clear, positive identification of specific antibodies for the 8 most common rheumatic diseases with one blood draw.

Our panel:

  • Utilizes IFA with HEp-2 cells, which remains the gold standard1
  • Reflexes to tiered cascading of specific autoantibodies to maximize sensitivity and specificity
  • Tests for rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), mixed connective tissue disease, Sjögren syndrome, systemic sclerosis, polymyositis/dermatomyositis, CREST syndrome, and neuropsychiatric SLE

ANAlyzeR™ ANA IFA with Reflex Titer/Pattern

The ANA Screen, Immunofluorescence assay (IFA), Reflex Titer/Pattern panel evaluates 25 analytes from a single sample to provide clear, positive identification of specific antibodies for the most common autoimmune rheumatic diseases.

Our panel:

  • Utilizes IFA with HEp-2 cells, which remains the gold standard1
  • Tests for all analytes regardless of ANA results
  • Tests for rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), mixed connective tissue disease, Sjögren syndrome, systemic sclerosis, polymyositis/dermatomyositis, CREST syndrome, and neuropsychiatric SLE
