Method: Thyroglobulin - Immunoradiometric assay (IRMA)

Specimen: Thyroglobulin - serum

Receiving specimen (Date): Monday to Friday

Processing/ running days: Thursday

Cut-off time: 9AM

Release of Results: 1 to 2 working days

Clinical significance: Thyroglobulin is a protein produced by both normal and cancerous thyroid cells. After treatment of thyroid cancer, serum thyroglobulin is useful as a tumor marker for monitoring and routine surveillance.


Anti-Thyroglobulin Ab

Method: Anti-Thyroglobulin- Radioimmunoassay (RIA)

Specimen: Anti-Thyroglobulin- serum

Receiving specimen (Date): Monday to Friday

Processing/ running days: Thursday

Cut-off time: 9AM

Release of Results: 1 to 2 working days

Clinical significance: Anti-Thyroglobulin antibody (anti-Tg) is helpful for diagnosis of autoimmune thyroid disorders. This is also particularly useful in monitoring patients treated for differentiated thyroid cancer. The presence of anti-Tg (which occurs in 15% to 30% of thyroid cancer patients) could result in artifactually high or low Thyroglobulin results.
