Autoimmunity

 

The Laboratory is particularly experienced in the laboratory diagnostic approach and in monitoring patients with autoimmune systemic diseases, different types of vasculitis, antiphospholipid syndrome as well as autoimmune organ-specific diseases (thyroid, liver, intestine etc.). A large number of samples is tested daily for a wide range of autoantibodies against organ-specific and non-organ-specific antigens using various methods (immunofluorescence, ELISA, double immunodiffusion, immunoblotting). An external quality assessment scheme is implemented in the department by a recognized foreign body (UK-NEQAS). For these tests, the Laboratory receives and tests samples of the patients of our hospital, outpatients and patients of other hospitals of the city.
