Brucella abortus is a bacterium which is found in cattle and it is gram-negative, a zoonotic bacteria which means that it can easily be transferred from an animal to human and still retain its pathogenic property. B. abortus causes a disease which is called brucellosis, this should always be considered in all abortions, in particular where there are multiple long term abortions in herds. Serology testing can be used for the initial presumptive diagnosis of brucellosis or even to screen herds. ELISA assay is most likely one of the most common serological methods and the sensitivity of an ELISA test is 100% when compared to blood culture. B. abortus can be eradicated from a herd by a combination of test and removal procedures or in some cases by depopulation.
Human Brucella abortus-IgG ELISA kit is a procedure intended for detecting in-vitro quantitative concentrations of human IgG antibodies against Brucella abortus in plasma or serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.11 U/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human Brucella abortus IgG using this human Brucella abortus-IgG ELISA kit was 1.11 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 1.0 – 150.0 U/ml.
