Products are for Professional/Laboratory use only.

Immuno Concepts are leaders in the development of state-of-the-art diagnostic assays for systemic rheumatic diseases. Immuno Concepts not only pioneered the conversion from rodent tissue to HEp-2 cells for the detection of anti-nuclear antibodies (ANAs) but also overcame one of the main pitfalls of ANA detection with the introduction of HEp-2000®, a patented ANA substrate genetically improved with increased sensitivity for detection of autoantibodies to SS-A/Ro. 1

Immuno Concepts HEp-2000 – over thirty worldwide publications – clinically superior performance

In the world of autoimmune diseases, antinuclear autoantibody (ANA) screening tests can be useful for clinicians seeking a diagnosis. The presence of certain ANAs in a patient’s serum can often be linked with systemic autoimmune rheumatic diseases (SARD) such as lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

Both the presence of ANA and the type of ANA can be reported using indirect immunofluorescence assays such as HEp-2 and HEp-2000.
