Order your Home Inflammation Test to gain a fast indication of the presents of Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins in your blood.

Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins have several roles, including the transport of cholesterol to the liver for secretion into the bile and the recruitment of immune cells to inflammatory sites. Understanding SAA levels in your blood can help with the further diagnosis of inflammation in the body.

Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins in your blood can be an indicator that further investigation of inflammation is required. This test uses a small sample of blood in a compact testing kit which is mailed directly to you.

The easy-to-use CE approved testing kit is mailed immediately on purchase and should reach you within 1-3 working days.

In the box, there will be full instructions provided on how to complete the sample and testing process in 10 minutes.

Symptoms you might be suffering from:

Testing Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins can provide valuable early warning signs of current or persistent inflammation and allow quicker additional diagnostics. Common symptoms include:

  • Joint pain
  • Movement pain and restriction
  • Inflammation
  • Possible arthritis

Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins are produced predominantly by the liver and are usually in response to inflammation in the body.

The raised Serum amyloid A (SAA) gives an indicator of inflammation in the body and is especially useful for evaluating disease severity and monitoring disease activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and secondary amyloidosis.

An SSA level higher than 10μIU/mL indicates a higher than normal level and a positive test.

The test provides results based on a Positive/Higher or Negative/Normal basis. Positive results can then be used to request a secondary test or consult further medical advice.

What's included in the Persistent Inflammation Test:

1 x Test cassette
1 x Single-use buffer
1 x Sterile lancet
1 x Instructions
2 x Alcohol pad
1 x Capillary
1 x Dropper

Note: You will require a method of timing the process.

SAA Rapid Test is a qualitative, solid phase, two-site sandwich immunoassay for the detection of serum amyloid A protein in whole blood, serum or plasma.

The membrane is pre-coated with anti-SAA antibodies on the test line region of the cassette.

During testing, SAA, if present in the whole blood, serum or plasma specimen, reacts with the coloured particles coated with anti-SAA antibodies.

The SAA-Conjugate complex migrates upward on the membrane chromatographically by capillary action to react with anti-SAA antibodies in the test line region on the membrane and generates a coloured line.

The presence of this coloured line in the test region indicates a positive result, while its absence indicates a negative result.

As a procedural control, a coloured line will always appear in the control line region, indicating that a proper volume of specimen has been added and membrane absorbing has occurred.

  • Our home testing kit has been validated against industry standards with a 100% correlation.
  • CE approved sample kit.
  • Results do not substantiate a medical diagnosis on their own but may be used by your doctor to help form a diagnosis or request a secondary analytical test.
  • It is possible that technical or procedural errors or other interfering substances in the whole blood specimen may cause erroneous results.
  • >97% reproducible results.

Serum amyloid A (SAA) proteins are a family of apolipoproteins associated with high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in plasma.

Different isoforms of SAA are expressed constitutively (constitutive SAAs) at different levels or in response to inflammatory stimuli (acute phase SAAs).

These proteins are produced predominantly by the liver (1). Acute-phase serum amyloid A proteins (A-SAAs) are secreted during the acute phase of inflammation.

These proteins have several roles, including the transport of cholesterol to the liver for secretion into the bile, the recruitment of immune cells to inflammatory sites, and the induction of enzymes that degrade the extracellular matrix.

Serum amyloid A (SAA) is also an acute-phase marker that responds rapidly. It has been suggested that SAA levels correlate better with disease activity in early inflammatory joint disease than do ESR and CRP.

Although largely produced by hepatocytes, more recent studies show that SAA is produced by adipocytes as well, and its serum concentration is associated with body mass index (2,3).
