Listed below are the Cardiolipin Antibody tests available in the Spectrum Health Regional Laboratory (SHRL) catalog. Please review the tests and the recommended test utilities.
This test screens for IgG and IgM cardiolipin antibodies and is reported as Positive or Negative
Positive Cardiolipin screen will be sent to Mayo Medical Laboratories for quantitative IgG and IgM Cardiolipin Antibody testing.
Cardiolipin IgA testing should not be ordered unless the patient is negative for IgM and IgG. It should be restricted to very specific clinical scenarios for the evaluation of patients with suspected APS (Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome). Cardiolipin IgA requests will be reviewed for presence or absence of IgM/IgG testing.
