Chlamydia pneumoniae is a gram negative bacterium which is a major cause of pneumonia. It was first identified in causing acute lower respiratory tract infections for example bronchitis and pneumonia in both children and adults. C. pneumoniae has the ability to infect a large number of different human cells which can include macrophages, lymphocytes, monocytes, endothelial, epithelial and smooth muscle cells. Many researcher have described Chlamydiae has energy parasites that are dependent on their host cell for many of the high-energy intermediates which includes ATP. This bacterium has a complex life cycle and in order to reproduce needs to infect another cell, therefore, it is generally classified as an obligate intracellular pathogen. At present there are no vaccines which are available against Chlamydophila pneumoniae, this has resulted in a shortage of facilities worldwide which have can identify or diagnose this disease.
Human Chlamydia pneumoniae-IgA ELISA kit is designed for analysing in-vitro quantitative amounts of human IgA class antibodies to Chlamydia pneumoniae using plasma and serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit to a diagn. 88.9%.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human Chlamydia pneumoniae IgA using this human Chlamydia pneumoniae-IgA ELISA kit was to a diagn. 88.9%. The dynamic assay range for this kit is to a specific cut-off point.
