Autoimmune serology is the diagnostic identification of immune antibodies in the serum. Autoantibodies play a central role in the diagnosis and classification of autoimmune serology. Autoimmune serological testing is used to confirm a specific diagnosis to evaluate disease activity relative to connective tissue diseases. An autoimmune disease occurs when the bodyÃÂ´s immune system begins to attack its own antigens. Distinctive methods have been utilized to create particular tests for auto antibody discovery including immunodiffusion, immunoblotting strategies, immunofluorescence, chemical immunoassays and as of late stream cytometry for multiplex assays.
