Patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) have multiple, scarred areas of the brain. Symptoms can initially be mild but typically lead to relasping or progressive incapacitating neuromotor dysfunction.

It is preferred that the collection date and time be the same for both
CSF and serum; however, it is acceptable for them to be drawn within
48 hours of each other.
NOTE: The client will be contacted when no serum is supplied to
confirm the order. The IgG Synthsis requires both CSF and Serum for
testing, otherwise, this portion of the profile will be canceled.
However, for Oligoclonal Banding test only, it is acceptable to send
through CSF without serum, when client has indicated to "run with
serum control". CSF must be clear. (CSF collection tube #4 preferred)
