(Min: 0.5 mL) If ordered in conjunction with a C1q Binding Assay, transfer TWO (2) 1 mL aliquots of serum to individual ARUP Standard Transport Tubes. 
Storage/Transport Temperature
CRITICAL FROZEN. Separate specimens must be submitted when multiple tests are ordered. 
Unacceptable Conditions

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

Compliance Statement A: Analyte specific reagents (ASR) are used in many laboratory tests necessary for standard medical care and generally do not require U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval or clearance. This test was developed and its performance characteristics determined by ARUP Laboratories. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not approved or cleared this test; however, FDA clearance or approval is not currently required for clinical use. The results are not intended to be used as the sole means for clinical diagnosis or patient management decisions. This test should not be regarded as investigational or for research use.

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.
