Anti-ssDNA Ab ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 29 June, 2017.


Autoantibodies against DNA are usually either IgM or IgG type which are able to react with natural single-stranded DNA (ssDNA), double stranded DNA (dsDNA) or both types. ssDNA antibodies tend to be found in high frequency in patients that either have systemic sclerosis or systemic lupus erythematosus, they are also present in both non-rheumatic and rheumatic diseases. ssDNA antibodies are vital in conjunction with detecting histone antibodies for the differential diagnosis of drug-induced lupus. In the serum of SLE patients, up to 87% patients display ssDNA antibodies during the acute relapse of the disease whereas only 43% is present in the inactive phase. There is also evidence to indicate that ssDNA antibodies are present in patients with juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA) and collagenases.


Human ss-DNA ELISA kit is intended for analysing in-vitro quantitative concentrations of IgG autoantibodies to single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) in human plasma and serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.0 U/ml.


The minimum detection sensitivity level of human single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) IgG autoantibodies using this human ss-DNA ELISA kit was 1.0 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 12.5 – 200.0 U/ml.

Your secretory IgA ELISA kit gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA kit performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA kits from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.

You are my first point of contact when I am looking to purchase ELISA kits. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
