Agglutinin - Warm - Qualitative

Agglutinin - Warm - Qualitative

The Warm Agglutinin - Qualitative test is a blood test used to detect the presence of warm agglutinins in the blood. These are specific types of antibodies, known as immunoglobulin G (IgG), which bind to and cause the agglutination (clumping) of red blood cells at body temperature. This test is essential for diagnosing and managing conditions such as warm autoimmune hemolytic anemia (WAIHA), certain infections, and some types of cancer.

Warm agglutinins are autoantibodies produced by the immune system that mistakenly target and damage the body's own cells, specifically the red blood cells. Unlike cold agglutinins, warm agglutinins react at body temperature, leading to the destruction of red blood cells, which can cause hemolytic anemia.
