Test ID: SCERG    
Saccharomyces cerevisiae Antibody, IgG, Serum

Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

Immunoglobulin G (IgG) anti-Saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodies (ASCA) are measured by commercial, microtiter enzyme immunoassay . This assay uses polystyrene microtiter plates coated with purified mannan from the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to capture antibodies from patient sera and horseradish peroxidase-conjugated anti-IgG antibodies to detect IgG ASCA. Results of the test for IgG ASCA are reported in relative units per milliliter (RU/mL).(Package insert: Anti-Saccharomyces cerevisiae ELISA (IgG). EUROIMMUN Medizinische Labordiagnostika AG; 5/2011)

Day(s) Performed Outlines the days the test is performed. This field reflects the day that the sample must be in the testing laboratory to begin the testing process and includes any specimen preparation and processing time before the test is performed. Some tests are listed as continuously performed, which means that assays are performed multiple times during the day.

Monday through Friday

Report Available The interval of time (receipt of sample at Mayo Clinic Laboratories to results available) taking into account standard setup days and weekends. The first day is the time that it typically takes for a result to be available. The last day is the time it might take, accounting for any necessary repeated testing.

Same day/1 day

Specimen Retention Time Outlines the length of time after testing that a specimen is kept in the laboratory before it is discarded

14 days

Performing Laboratory Location Indicates the location of the laboratory that performs the test
