Testing for cyclic citrullinated protein antibodies is performed with the qualitative EliATM 
CCP antibody test.  This automated assay using the Phadia 250 system detects IgG
antibodies using a second generation CCP antigen.  Results are reported as Positive-with the value, 
Negative, or Equivocal.  The proportion of sera from a healthy population found positive
for the CCP antibodies covered by the EliA ATM CCP test is below 1% (PMID: 16265684).
