LP6323-2     Immunofluorescence (IF)

DESCRIPTION
  Part: IF
  Description: Immunofluorescence (IF) does not distinguish among many the variants of immunofluorescent tests. Fluorescent antibody (FA) assay is a general term for procedures which utilize the visual detection of fluorescent dyes coupled conjugated to antibodies which react with the antigen when present using fluorescent microscopy. Direct fluorescent antibody assay (DFA) is a form of fluorescent antibody technique utilizing a fluorochrome conjugated to an antibody, which is added directly to a tissue or cell suspension for the detection of a specific antigen. Indirect fluorescent antibody assay (IFA) is a form of fluorescent antibody technique commonly used to detect serum antibodies and immune complexes in tissues and microorganisms in specimens from patients with infectious diseases. The technique involves formation of an antigen-antibody complex which is labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody.
