β2-Glycoprotein I IgM

Product Description

The β2-Glycoprotein I IgM test is a chemiluminescent immunoassay (CLIA), for use on IDS automated analyzers. It is used for the quantitative determination of the specific IgM antibodies directed against β2-glycoprotein I in human samples of serum or plasma (EDTA and Heparin).
