Crithidia Luciliae - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics
A more specific, though less sensitive, test utilizes fluorescence microscopy and the protozoan Crithidia luciliae, which has a kinetoplast comprising only dsDNA. The Crithidia assay is generally preferred for diagnostic purposes, whereas the radioimmunoassay or ELISA can be used for monitoring. 530 The sensitivity of anti-dsDNA for predicting SLE flares is approximately 50%.
