Adult Islet Autoantibody Panel (ICA, GADA, IA-2A, and ZnT8A)
- Diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes: The presence of islet cell cytoplasmic autoantibodies (ICA), glutamic acid decarboxylase autoantibodies (GADA), insulinoma-2 associated autoantibodies (IA-2A) and/or zinc transporter 8 autoantibodies (ZnT8A) in the serum of patients who have been biochemically diagnosed with diabetes mellitus indicates the presence of autoimmune, type 1 diabetes mellitus (aka type 1A diabetes mellitus).
- Prediction of Type 1 Diabetes: The presence of ICA, GADA, IA-2A and/or ZnT8A in the serum of an asymptomatic individual places the subject at increased risk for the development of type 1 diabetes mellitus.
Collect blood in a 5 mL serum separator tube. Centrifuge, separate and transfer the serum to a plastic vial. Ship specimens with a frozen cold pack for overnight delivery.
