Immunological laboratory tests

Why is laboratory testing important?

Laboratory tests can help identify or, where appropriate, rule out the underlying diseases.

However, it is important to highlight that the result of a laboratory test does not in itself constitute a diagnosis, only the results are included in the finding. You will receive the diagnosis, therapy or treatment recommendation from your specialist or treating physician who ordered the laboratory tests.

Contact your doctor with all laboratory test results.

Immunological tests

Immunological laboratory tests examine the functioning of the system that protects the body. The immune system normally tries to protect our body from viruses and bacteria that are foreign to it by distinguishing between “own” and “foreign” molecules (antigens) in our body. As a first step, it recognises these and then begins to produce antibodies. The levels of these antibodies can be measured during laboratory tests.

They can also be used to detect the causes of recurrent infections, immunodeficiency diseases, and autoimmune diseases.

Autoantibody tests

In autoimmune diseases, the body’s immune system produces antibodies against its own cells, tissues, organs and organ system. These are called autoantibodies. The diagnosis of autoimmune diseases is supported by the laboratory with autoantibody detection and special immunological laboratory tests.
