Human ASCA IgG/IgA ELISA kit is intended for analysing in vitro quantitative levels of IgA and IgG anti-saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodies (ASCA-IgG/IgA) using human plasma or serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 0.5 U/ml.


Anti-saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodies (ASCAs) are present in people who have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and are a useful tool which can aid in distinguishing between ulcerative colitis and Crohn disease, both of which are the two most common types of IBD. The tests that are carried out involve detecting two classes of ASCA in blood, notably IgA and IgG. Studies have identified 7% positive IgA and 5% IgG class in ASCA in ulcerative colitis, in comparison to Crohn’s disease where a sensitivity of 60% for IgA and 75% for IgG class ASCA can be observed. ASCAs and pANCAs are two vital biomarkers which are used for colitis discrimination, where pANCA tend to recognize ulcerative colitis and ASCA recognizes Crohn’s disease more frequently. Diseases in which ASCA have been identified include Celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, Colitis and Behçet’s disease. ASCA IgG/IgA ELISA kit can be used for a variety of diagnostic applications.


The minimum detection sensitivity level of human anti-saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodies (ASCA IgG and IgA) using current human ASCA IgG/IgA ELISA kit was 0.5 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 6.3 – 100.0 U/ml.

Your secretory IgA ELISA 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 assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's 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. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
