    The Hla B-27(Flow Cytometry) test is an essential diagnostic tool used to detect the presence of the HLA-B27 antigen in individuals. This test is primarily conducted to diagnose ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, and other related autoimmune disorders. The HLA-B27 antigen acts as a marker for these autoimmune diseases, and detection of the antigen through the Hla B-27(Flow Cytometry) Test helps doctors to diagnose the disease early and provide appropriate treatment.

    Symptoms of Ankylosing Spondylitis or Reactive Arthritis

    Symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis or reactive arthritis may vary, but some of the common symptoms are as follows:
    - Pain in the lower back or buttocks that may persist for more than three months.
    - Joint pain and stiffness, especially in the morning or after a prolonged period of inactivity.
    - Limited mobility of the spine.
    - Inflammation in tendons and ligaments, especially in the heels and bottom of feet.

    Test Procedure

    The Hla B-27(Flow Cytometry) Panel is a simple blood test and can be performed at any time during the day. The healthcare professional will collect a small sample of blood from your arm using a needle. The blood sample will then be sent to the laboratory for testing.

    The Hla B-27(Flow Cytometry) Panel is performed using flow cytometry technology. Flow cytometry is a process that uses lasers to identify specific cells in the bloodstream based on their size, shape, and surface proteins.

    In the case of the Hla B-27, the test is performed using flow cytometry technology. Flow cytometry is a process that uses lasers to identify specific cells in the bloodstream based on their size, shape, and surface proteins. The laboratory technician will use a special antibody that binds to the HLA-B27 antigen. This antibody is tagged with a fluorescent marker. When the laser is directed at the sample, it causes the fluorescent marker to emit light, which is measured by a detector. The amount of light emitted is directly proportional to the amount of HLA-B27 antigen present in the sample.


    Early detection and diagnosis of autoimmune diseases are essential to prevent severe complications. If an individual receives a positive diagnosis for ankylosing spondylitis or reactive arthritis, they should immediately consult a healthcare professional who specializes in treating autoimmune disorders.

    Getting tested early for autoimmune diseases like ankylosing spondylitis or reactive arthritis using Hla B-27(Flow Cytometry) Panel is highly recommended to prevent severe complications.
