RA Factor Test - More Information

The rheumatoid factor test, also known as an RF test, RA factor blood test, RF blood test and rheumatoid arthritis test, measures the RA factor blood level.

Rheumatoid arthritis factor (RA factor) is a type of antibody produced by the immune system. RA factor testing is often done out of the suspicion that one has rheumatoid arthritis as elevated rheumatoid factor levels are detectable in a majority of cases. The rheumatoid factor test is tested in conjunction with the CCP blood test in the arthritis test panel. Rheumatoid factor can also be detected in other collagen vascular diseases such as scleroderma and Sjogren's syndrome which is why it is sometimes ordered with the Sjogren's syndrome test.

To get an RA factor test near you, just order online and get your blood drawn at the selected Quest Diagnostics lab.
