Well, the ANA-Direct is not new, I've seem it referenced as far back as 2009. Doesn't seem to have become the "standard" yet, that's for sure. Glad you figured out that is what they used.
Not sure how accurate it is - saw one woman report who had ANA 1:1280 (high positive) when the ANA-Direct was negative.
I definitely suggest pushing for a rheumy appt.
