IgG and albumin quantitation in both serum and spinal fluid samples; CSF IgG:CSF albumin ratio; CSF IgG index; CSF IgG synthesis rate; myelin basic protein (CSF); oligoclonal banding
4 - 9 days
Turnaround time is defined as the usual number of days from the date of pickup of a specimen for testing to when the result is released to the ordering provider. In some cases, additional time should be allowed for additional confirmatory or additional reflex tests. Testing schedules may vary.
Serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), collected at the same time
2 mL serum and 2.5 mL CSF
0.8 mL serum and 1.4 mL CSF
*IgG synthesis rate and IgG:albumin ratio (CSF) within the multiple sclerosis profile utilize the same IgG and albumin (CSF and serum) results from the IgG index for calculations; therefore, no additional sample is required.
Myelin basic protein (MBP)
Serum and CSF must be collected at the same time.
Includes IgG and albumin on CSF and serum
Total sample required
Plastic transport tubes
Collect serum and CSF at the same time. Avoid contaminating CSF with blood. Centrifuge CSF at 1500xg for 20 minutes and place the supernatant into separate tubes. Ensure residual fibrin and cellular matter have been removed.
Plasma instead of serum specimen; serum and CSF not collected within eight hours of each other; lipemic, hemolyzed, or icteric CSF specimen
Adjunct in aiding clinical diagnosis of multiple sclerosis
Results for this test are for research purposes only by the assay's manufacturer. The performance characteristics of this product have not been established. Results should not be used as a diagnostic procedure without confirmation of the diagnosis by another medically established diagnostic product or procedure.
MBP: enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA); oligoclonal banding: IEF; CSF IgG, CSF albumin, and serum IgG: immunologic; serum albumin: spectrophotometry; synthesis rate, ratio, and index by calculation
