What is a HLA-B27 test?
The HLA-B27 test is typically used to help diagnose ankylosing spondylitis, reactive arthritis, or juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. This test is often ordered for people with spine, neck or joint pain.
What's included in the total fees?
The fees include everything that you need to get tested:
- A lab order from a medical provider
- All lab fees
- An electronic copy of your results
Do I need a separate lab order to get tested?
No. A lab order is authorized by a licensed medical provider in your state and is included in the total.
What happens after I place my order?
Your order will be reviewed and approved by a licensed medical provider in your state. Once approved (typically in a few hours or less), you will receive an email notification and information on how to access a PDF of your lab order to take to the lab. If, for some reason at the sole discretion of the licensed medical providers, your request cannot be approved, you will receive a full refund.
Where do I get tested?
We work with Quest Diagnostics and you will be able to get tested at a location found on the lab finder when making your request. You will need to bring your lab order to the lab on the day of testing.
How long will it take to get my results?
It typically takes 4 business days or less.
Can I use my health insurance?
No. Health insurance cannot be used to pay for the services provided. We accept all major credit/debit cards, Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards, and PayPal.
HLA-B27, or human leukocyte antigen B27, is a type of protein found on certain types of cells. HLA-B27 is present in a minority of people but, when found, has been strongly associated with a condition called ankylosing spondylitis. Ankylosing spondylitis, or AS, is an inflammatory arthritis that affects joints in the spine and pelvis, leading to stiffness. HLA-B27 has also been associated with uveitis and other autoimmune conditions such as psoriasis, reactive arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The exact mechanism for disease pathology in people with HLA-B27 is not clear.
This HLA-B27 test is an HLA DNA typing test that utilizes a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methodology. To get an HLA-B27 test at a Quest Diagnostics lab near you, click the button above, complete the medical information questionnaire, select a lab and pay for your blood test. Once your HLA-B27 lab request is submitted, Push Health will immediately contact licensed medical providers in your state of residence to see if one is willing to approve the test. In almost every case, a licensed provider will approve the HLA-B27 genetic test for you and it generally happens within one hour or less. Assuming your HLA-B27 test is approved, you will need to take the lab order to your selected Quest Diagnostics lab and get your blood drawn. Once your HLA-B27 lab report is available, the ordering provider will review it and release it to you where the HLA-B27 results will be accessible in your Push Health account.
