How do I use panel filtering?

ImmunoQuery with Custom Sync allows you to customize your ImmunoQuery panels. Four options exist to view your dx panels: no filtering (classic ImmunoQuery), lab available antibody filter, expert panel filter and both lab available antibody and expert panel filter. Below are screen shots of each activated filter with a description preceding each:

Comprehensive Panels without filtering is that of the classic ImmunoQuery featuring the Comprehensive and Suggested Panel using meta-analysis (please note that no boxes beside the word “Filter:” are checked). Along the left-hand side of the results panel, icons are shown. The presence of the icon next to an antibody name indicates that the antibody is unavailable in the hospital’s lab. Conversely, the absence of a symbol next to an antibody name identifies the antibody as available in the hospital’s lab.

When the hospital’s “Available in Lab Inventory” filter is checked the Comprehensive panel displays only those antibodies that are available in-house. All unavailable antibodies are removed.

The third and forth filters show the Ask an Expert panel for the 3-diagnosis differential panel (note the checked “Expert” box). The third filter is that of the classic Ask and Expert panel with availability icons shown down the left-hand side of the panel. The presence of the icon next to an antibody name indicates that the antibody is unavailable in the hospital’s lab. Conversely, the absence of a symbol next to an antibody name identifies the antibody as available in the hospital’s lab.

The fourth filter shows the Ask an Expert panel but, similar to the second filter, displays only those antibodies that are available in-house. All unavailable antibodies are removed.
