Hipro's RA latex factor test kit is used to determine the content of Rheumatoid factor (RF) in human blood, and specific reagent for the specific protein analyzer, applies only to the clinical in vitro assisted diagnosis. RF is a non-specific immunoglobulin in serum, produced by body's immune system for the antibodies of degenerative immune globulin (IgG) in vivo. The deposition in everywhere of the body is the immune complexes formed by RF and IgG, is an important factor to cause the performance of joint local lesions and joints; RF can also be found in patients with dermatomyositis, scleroderma, chronic active hepatitis.
The RF units conjugated lgG in the latex surface.
RF in the sample and the lgG become to immune complexes by Latex condensation reaction in the liquid phase.
The immune complexes will produce the phenomenon of light scattering, which is proportional to the intensity of scattered light and samples of RF levels.
Using a specific protein analyzer to measure the intensity of scattered light, the concentration of RF is determined by comparing the turbidity of samples to the standard concentration.
