Aspergillus Fumigatus IgG ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 13 July, 2017.

BACKGROUND

Aspergillus fumigatus is a filamentous fungus which can occur naturally in decaying organic material and since it is also a thermotolerant fungus it can grow in elevated temperatures that are found in the composting process. A. fumigatus is able to frequently cause invasive fungal infection in immunosuppressed individuals such as AIDS patients, organ transplant recipients and those receiving immunosuppressive therapy for neoplastic or autoimmune disease. It is predominately responsible for causing invasive infection to the lungs and can lead to mortality and morbidity in these patients. There is also evidence to suggest it can cause allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, cause chronic pulmonary infections and allergic disease in immunocompetent hosts. Aspergillosis is essentially a group of diseases that are result of aspergillus infections and these include ABPA, aspergilloma, CPA and invasive aspergillosis.

INTENDED USE

Human Aspergillus fumigatus-IgG ELISA kit is intended for in-vitro quantitative analysis of human IgG antibodies against Aspergillus fumigatus in serum or plasma samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.08 U/ml.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum detection sensitivity level of human Aspergillus fumigatus IgG using this human Aspergillus fumigatus-IgG ELISA kit was 1.08 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 1.0 – 200.0 U/ml.

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.
