Chlamydia Trachomatis IgA ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 12 July, 2017.

BACKGROUND

Chlamydia trachomatis is usually commonly referred to as chlamydia, it is a pathogenic bacteria which are known as obligate intracellular parasites. C. trachomatis is ovoid in shape, a non-motile and gram negative bacterium. This bacterium is regarded as one of the most frequent reported cases of sexually transmitted disease within the United States and it is also a leading cause for infectious blindness (trachoma) around the world. Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) can be employed in order to find substances (Chlamydia antigens) that are responsible for triggering the immune system to fight Chlamydia infection. Researcher has also utilised Chlamydia Elementary body (EB)-ELISA which is able to stratify the different stages of infection based upon Immunoglobulin-γ status of the infected individuals.

INTENDED USE

Human Chlamydia trachomatis-IgA ELISA kit is a protocol for measuring in-vitro quantitative levels of IgA class antibodies to Chlamydia trachomatis using either plasma or serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit to a diagn. >95.0%.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum detection sensitivity level of human Chlamydia trachomatis IgA using this human Chlamydia trachomatis-IgA ELISA kit was to a diagn. >95.0%. The dynamic assay range for this kit is to a specific cut-off point.

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.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

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.
