Antibodies Against Thyroperoxidase (Anti-TPO)

Testing for thyroid antibodies is primarily indicated to help diagnose an autoimmune thyroid disease and to distinguish it from the other forms of thyroid dysfunction. Thyroid autoantibodies develop when a person's immune system mistakenly targets components of the thyroid gland or thyroid proteins, leading to chronic inflammation of the thyroid (thyroiditis), tissue damage, and disruption of thyroid function.

Specimen requirement - 5 ml of peripheral blood collected in gel vacutainer tube and plasma/serum is isolated.

Reporting time - 1 day
