The Autoantibody Standardization Committee was established in the early 1980s based on the recognized needs for reference human autoimmune sera that were critical for academic, clinical, and industrial laboratories. To date, 14 reference reagents are available without charge from the Biological Reference Reagents distribution center at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A web site has been developed under "AutoAbSC.Org" to communicate to the wider stakeholder community and to facilitate ongoing activities in continuing the mission in autoantibody standardization.
