C7 Complement, Functional, Serum

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

Component 7 (C7) complement activity is measured by mixing patient serum with a C7-deficient serum. The lytic activity of the serum mixture is tested against sensitized, labeled liposomes. If lysis occurs, the patient serum must be the source of the C7. The target liposomes are a commercial reagent (WAKO total complement CH50), and the assay is performed on an Advia XPT.(Unpublished Mayo method)
