Change in Report Format for S-SA (Ro) / S-SB (La)

Effective 5/1/05, the SS-A (Ro) and SS-B (La) autoantibody assays will be reported out semi-quantitatively instead of qualitatively.  The samples will be classified as negative, weak positive, moderate positive or strong positive according to the table below:
Negative <20 units
Weak positive 20-39 units
Moderate positive 40-80 units
Strong positive >80 units
