AFP (ALFA FETA PROTEIN) TEST

 AFP test is an immunochromatographic test used to qualitatively detect alpha-fetoprotein in human whole blood / serum / plasma.

Alpha-Fetoprotein (AFP) is normally produced during fetal and neonatal development by the liver, yolk sac and in small concentrations by the gastrointestinal tract.

  • In areas where liver cancer is common, the use of AFP tests for screening has resulted in the detection of many tumors at an earlier stage.
  • Detection of elevated AFP levels can also be used in the detection of fetal open neural tube defects.
