Interpretive Data
Many autoimmune disorders, chronic infections and malignancies are associated with circulating immune complexes. Quantitation of immune complexes assists in staging immunologic disorders.

See Compliance Statement A: www.aruplab.com/CS  
Note
Immune complexes bind to Raji Cells via their complement receptors.  The immunoglobulin portion of the immune complex is then detected by flow cytometry with anti-human IgG-FITC.
