Emergency Screening Service

Rapid Screening for Progressive Glomerulonephritis and Pulmonary-Renal syndrome

Our rapid screening service is a unique service, only available in Sweden that offers fast qualitative screening of PR3-ANCA, MPO-ANCA and anti-GBM.

We guarantee your answer by phone within one hour of receiving the sample - every day of the year.

As with all rapid screening, the specificity is not 100% and there may be false positive results in approximately 1% of the tested samples. All acute ANCA and GBM screening are confirmed by quantitative ELISA within the next following normal workday. The rapid screening should not be used as routine monitoring where quantitative tests are recommended.
