Immunofluorescent Assays (IFA)

Since the doors opened, the core focus of our manufacturing since the beginning has been with IFA slides. Our growth and production processes for our cell and tissue lines have been perfected over the last 40 years, and are the secret ingredients to what makes our slides looking consistently better than the rest of the market. Our test systems are designed to work in conjunction, especially when automated, with matching incubations and system fluids. Slide configurations vary dependent on your needs.

HEp-2000 uses a patented HEp-2 cell line that has been genetically engineered to increase the sensitivity to SS-A/Ro autoantibodies without affecting the other ANA patterns seen. What’s the big deal with SS-A/Ro? We would love to show you.

The original HEp-2 blend that started it all is still available. We continue to grow the original and produce slides for customers all over the world.

Crithidia lucilliae continue to be the most widely used assay for anti-DNA autoantibody testing worldwide.

ANCA associated vasculitides require well produced diagnostic slides. This test kit is ethanol-fixed neutrophils.

ANCA associated vasculitides require well produced diagnostic slides. This test kit is formalin-fixed neutrophils.

ANA interference in typical ANCA testing can be frustrating. With our ANCA-L substrate the staining of our large lymphocyte nuclei indicates the presence of ANA.

Our tissue production team can help to design the test kit needed for your process. Mouse KS, LKS or Rat LKS.
