INTERLEUKIN-6 (IL-6) SARS-COV-2 (COVID-19) ADVANCED PANEL
Test Price: ₹ 12000
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV)Â and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans. Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome and kidney failure. This panel helps to assess if a patient is likely to develop complications like a cytokine storm & coagulation defects due to Sars-CoV-2 infection.
Pre-Test Information:Duly filled Covid-19 Clinical Information Form (Form 44) / SRF ID as mandated by GOI is mandatory AND Duly filled Coagulation Requisition Form (Form 15) is mandatory. Patient should avoid Biotin at least 8 hours prior to specimen collection. Overnight fasting is preferred.
Method:Real Time RT-PCR, Electrical Impedence, VCS, Spectrophotometry, Indirect ISE, Immunoturbidimetry, Photo-optical clot detection, ECLIA, CLIA, IFCC, CMIA
Specimen:5 mL (4 mL min.) serum from 2 SSTs. Ship refrigerated or frozen AND 2 mL (1 mL min.) plasma from 1 Lavender Top (EDTA) tube. Separate plasma within 2 hours of collection. Ship refrigerated or frozen. Patient should avoid Biotin at least 8 hours prior to specimen collection AND 3 mL (2 mL min.) whole blood from 1 Lavender Top (EDTA) tube. Ship refrigerated. DO NOT FREEZE AND 3 mL whole blood in 1 Blue Top (Sodium Citrate) tube. Mix thoroughly by inversion. Transport to Lab within 4 hours. If this is not possible, make PPP within 1 hour of collection as follows: Centrifuge sample at 3600 rpm for 15 min. & transfer supernatant to a clean plastic tube. Centrifuge this supernatant again at 3600 rpm for 15 min. & finally transfer the supernatant (PPP) to one labelled clean plastic screw capped vial. FREEZE IMMEDIATELY. Ship frozen. DO NOT THAW. Overnight fasting is preferred. Duly filled Coagulation Requisition Form (Form 15) is mandatory AND Nasopharyngeal swab & Oropharyngeal swabs in a special Viral transport medium (VTM) available from LPL. Ship refrigerated. DO NOT FREEZE. Duly filled Covid-19 Clinical Information Form (Form 44) / SRF ID as mandated by GOI is mandatory.
