RA Blood Test - More Information

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

Rheumatoid factor is a type of antibody produced by the immune system. RF 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. Rheumatoid factor is used along with the CCP blood test in more advanced rheumatoid arthritis screening panels. Rheumatoid factor can also be detected in other collagen vascular diseases such as Sjogren's syndrome and scleroderma.

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