Serology

Serology

By combining the power of Molecular Biology and Next-Generation Sequencing, TRUSTlab is in the forefront of transforming HealthCare by identifying inherited disorders, characterizing genetic mutations that drive cancer progression, or tracking disease outbreaks.

Technologies

Rapid Qualitative (Lateral Flow Assays / Immunochromatography)

Quantitative Assays (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbant Assays – ELISAs)

Chemiluminescent Immunoassay (CLIA)

On the Autolumo1000 fully automated Random access analyser (throughput – 100 Tests/hour), Thyroids, Fertility, Cardiac, Prenatal screening, Glyco metabolism, Bone metabolism, ToRCH, Tumor markers, Anaemia, Inflammation monitoring, Kidney function, Infectious like HIV, HBsAG, HCV & Syphilis etc., are diagnosed within a short span of time.

Specialized Tests

Serology tests are used to determine whether a person has present or past exposure to a pathogen. The tests look for antibodies, which can bind to the pathogen, that were formed as part of the immune response.
Type of Serology Test What it tells us Limitations
Rapid Serology Test
The presence or absence (qualitative) of antibodies against the virus present in patient serum.
The amount of antibodies in the patient serum, or if these antibodies are able to inhibit virus growth
Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA)
The presence or absence (quantitative) of antibodies against the virus present in patient serum.
If the antibodies are able to inhibit virus growth.
Neutralization Assay
The presence of active antibodies in patient serum that are able to inhibit virus growth ex vivo, in a cell culture system.
It may miss antibodies to viral proteins that are not involved in replication.
Enhanced Chemiluminescent Immunoassay
The presence or absence (quantitative) of antibodies against the virus present in the patient serum.
If the antibodies are able to inhibit virus growth.
