A positive reaction in antibody screening
test with 3 cell panel indicated the presence of irregular antibodies.
However, the gel method is preferred for antibody screening
11) Variation in pipetting technique decreases the sensitivity of the antibody screening
tests, thus increasing the probability of failure to detect an antibody, (12) particularly if the antibody is weakly reactive.

Wainberg recommended the creation of affordable tests such as polymerase chain reaction assays to directly monitor the presence of HIV instead of relying on the current method of antibody screening

Future research with the new generation of screening tests may help us to understand the relative proportions of elderly patients with active, latent and silent coeliac disease and to establish whether the sensitivity and specificity values established by the antiendomysial antibody screening
test remain valid into late life.
Adding the HIV antibody screening
seems like a no-brainer.
