Human Candida albicans IgM ELISA kit is designed for measuring in-vitro quantitative amounts of human IgM antibodies against Candida albicans in samples of plasma and serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.11 U/ml.
Candida albicans belong to the yeast species and are a single celled fungus that predominately live in the gastrointestinal tract. There are also small amounts of this yeast which can be found in many other moist and warm conditions within the body such as the mouth, vagina, rectum and many parts of the skin. There can be many different factors which are responsible for keeping check the balance of C. albicans microbes present within the body, however, if these become affected then this could result in the fungus growing out of control and resulting in yeast infections (known as candidiasis).
The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgM antibodies against Candida albicans using this human Candida albicans IgM ELISA kit was 1.11 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.0 – 150.0 U/ml.
