Panel Reactive Antibody (PRA) Screening by Luminex (Class I & Class II)

51+ booked in last 3 days


Class I and class II antibodies in your blood play a crucial role in how your immune system recognises and reacts to foreign tissues. Class I antibodies recognise antigens on virtually all cells in the body, while class II antibodies specifically target cells involved in the immune response. Panel Reactive Antibody (PRA) Screening by Luminex, for both Class I and Class II, is a diagnostic test that detects and quantifies antibodies in a recipient's blood against a panel of potential donor antigens. By assessing the level of sensitization, the PRA screening provides crucial information for donor compatibility and the risk of immune-mediated complications in organ transplantation. This comprehensive and sensitive approach helps guide decisions regarding donor selection, cross-matching strategies, and personalized immunosuppressive regimens, ensuring optimal transplant outcomes and minimizing the risk of antibody-mediated rejection.

Frequently Asked Questions

This test measures the presence of class I and class II antibodies in your blood.

• To evaluate the compatibility between an organ donor and recipient prior to transplantation • To assess the level of sensitisation and reduce the risk of organ rejection due to pre-existing antibodies present in the recipient's blood

Your doctor may recommend this test if • you are a candidate for organ transplantation or have previously received a transplant, or • you have been exposed to blood transfusions, pregnancies, or previous transplants.

Increased levels of class I and/or class II antibodies suggest a higher risk of organ rejection due to pre-existing antibodies.

During this test, a blood sample will be collected from you. The sample will be sent to the laboratory for analysis.

• Inform your doctor about any medications or supplements you are currently taking. Also, tell them if you have any specific requirements. • Follow your doctor's instructions and inform them about any recent blood transfusions, pregnancies, or previous transplants.

• Human Leucocyte Antigen (HLA) typing: This test determines the specific genetic markers present on your cells, aiding in transplant matching. • Crossmatch test: This test assesses the compatibility between your antibodies and the potential donor's cells. • Transplant workup tests: These tests evaluate your overall health, including kidney and liver function, to ensure successful transplantation.

Organ transplantation is a surgical procedure that involves replacing a diseased or failing organ with a healthy one from a donor. It is primarily performed to treat conditions such as kidney, liver, heart, or lung failure. Transplantation offers improved quality of life and increased survival rates for eligible patients.
