The choice is yours

EliA    rheumatoid arthritis tests offer you:

  • A testing solution that helps you get it right the first time – in low-prevalence disease, like rheumatoid arthritis, to reduce false positive results, specificity is important; EliA CCP test and RF isotypes offer an outstanding combination of sensitivity and specificity24,26
  • A test you can rely on – EliA CCP test is the best-in-class, a test you can rely on to help correctly identify rheumatoid arthritis patients24
  • Isotypes that offer added confidence – The addition of EliA RF IgM and RF IgA tests to EliA CCP test improves the specificity of testing – if all three are positive the specificity of testing is 100%26,27
