Neurology Tests Offered By Dr Lal PathLabs

The mind matters the most

Neurological disorders are commonly encountered in India which remain unscreened and undiagnosed. Understanding the need of the hour, Dr Lal PathLabs presents state of the art specialized neuro-segment tests.

neurological disorders

Some of the key tests offered by Dr Lal PathLabs on Neurology segment 

Test Name Clinical Utility
  Myasthenia Gravis Panel
*Acetylcholine Receptor Binding Antibody
*Striated / Skeletel Muscle Antibody in Dilutions
First Line Diagnosis of Myasthenia Gravis (MG) is characterized by muscle weakness and easy fatigability most commonly due to autoantibody mediated loss of functional acetylcholine receptors in the post-synaptic membrane of skeletal muscle.
Acetyl Choline Receptor (ACHR) Binding Antibody Diagnose acquired forms of Myasthenia Gravis for detecting sub-clinical MG in reciepients of D-penicilamine.
Musk (Muscle Specific Kinase) Antibody Second order test to aid in the diagnosis of autoimmune Myasthenia gravis when first line serological test (AChR antibody) is negative.
Neuronal (Paraneoplastic) Autoantibodies Profile
(Amphiphysin* CV2* PNMA2 (Ma2/Ta)*ANNA-1/Hu*
ANNA-2/Ri* PCA-1/YO)
Assay detects antibodies against neuronal antigens in Paraneoplastic syndromes. It is used in the diagnosis of Paraneoplastic neurological autoimmune disorders related to Carcinoma of lung, breast , ovary , thymoma and Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Anti – NMO (Neuromylytis Optica)
Antibody/Aquaporin 4
Highly specific serum autoantibody markers are found very frequently in NMO which ensures effective diagnosis.
Autoimmune Encephalities Panel
NMDA (Ant-glutamate receptor against NR1 sub-unit)
AMPA ( Anti-glutamate )-GluR1
AMPA ( Anti-glutamate KiuR2
GABA-B receptor antibody
LGI-1 antibody ( VGKC type )
This test detects the antibodies (IgG) in Transfected HEK cells.
Multiple Sclerosis Panel 1
*IgG Synthesis Index & rate *Oligoclonal Bands,CSF
Useful for diagnosing MS specifically in patients with equivocal clinical or radiological findings.
Duchenne / Becker Muscular Dystrophy
(DMD / BMD) Gene Mutation
This assay detects deletions in al 79 exons of the dystrophin gene in both males and females.
ANTI NMDA Receptor / Anti-glutamate Antibody (IFA) Autoantibodies against glutamate receptors (NMDA) type are specific markers for anti-glutamate receptor type encephalities.
Neurovirus Panel Qualitative PCR
( EBV. CMV, AV. HSV 1. HSV2, VZV. EV. PV. HHV6, B19. HHV7 )
PCR based assay for rapid identifiction of specific DNA and RNA viruses from CSF.
Voltage Gated Potassium Channel (VGKC) Antibody Diagnosis of clinical spectrum of acquired Neuromyotonia (NMT) and Cramp Fasciculation Syndrome (CFS).
SCA-1 (SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA), ATXN1 GENE MUTATION
SCA-2 (SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA), ATXN2 GENE MUTATION
SCA-3 (SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA), ATXN3 GENE MUTATION
SCA-6 (SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA), CACNA1A GENE MUTATION
SCA-7 (SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA), ATXN7 GENE MUTATION
SCA-12 (SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA), PPP2R2B GENE MUTATION
SCA  (SPINOCEREBELLAR ATAXIA), COMPREHENSIVE PROFILE
To diagnose Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA), also known as spinocerebellar atrophy a progressive, degenerative, genetic disease with multiple types, There is no known cure of Spinocerebellar ataxia, It can be easily misdiagnosed as another neurological condition, such as multiple sclerosis(MS). The most precise means of identifying SCA, including the specific type, is through DNA analysis.

Also Introducing : Chromo Fic, Chromosome SNP Microarray, 750K, High Resolution Test

A high resolution copy number array which enhances the detection of all chromosomes abnormalities. It can also detect copy neutral changes such as Uniparental Disomy ( UPD ) and Consanguinity.
