Immunology

Immunological tests are used to diagnose and monitor a range of disorders effecting the immune system. This includes tests for allergic disease, autoimmune conditions and monitoring the level of T-lymphocytes, the cells that disappear after HIV infection. The RCPAQAP immunology program has EQA programs covering over 50 diagnostic immunological tests.
