Autoantibodies against mitochondria (AMA)

EUROPLUS kidney (rat) and M2 antigen

Rat kidney and M2 BIOCHIP: antibodies against mitochondria, type AMA M2
  • Screening test for the detection of antibodies against mitochondria (AMA) including simultaneous confirmation of the subtype AMA M2.
  • Indication: primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC).
  • Initial dilution 1 : 100; conjugate anti-human IgG, FITC-labelled.
  • Rat kidney is the standard substrate for detecting anti-mitochondrial antibodies. Nine AMA types (M1 to M9) can be differentiated.
  • The BIOCHIP coated with M2 permits monospecific confirmation of antibodies against the native pyruvate dehydrogenase complex and the recombinant M2 fusion protein (BPO) in one single test procedure, thus a PBC can be diagnosed serologically with confidence.
  • This BIOCHIP Mosaic can be supplemented as required using additional substrates, e.g. HEp-2 cells (ANA, nuclear dots), rat liver (liver-kidney microsomes, LKM) or rat stomach (ASMA).
