Dengue Virus IgG ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 13 July, 2017.

BACKGROUND

Dengue is a mosquito borne viral infection which is caused by Dengue virus (DENV), it is a single stranded RNA positive virus that belongs to the Flaviviridae (genus Flavivirus). Other member of this family include West Nile virus, Yellow Fever virus, Tick-borne Encephalitis virus and a number of other viruses which can cause encephalitis. There are 4 different antigenically serotypes of this virus that have been reported DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3 and DENV-4. Dengue is a 50 nm virus which is enveloped with a lipid membrane, the virus genome is approx. 11000 bases and the polyprotein is essentially divided into three structural proteins C, E and prM. There are also seven non-structural proteins NS1, NS2a, NS2b, ND4a, NS4b and NS5, plus a non-coding region which is located at both the 3’ and 5’ ends. The infection generally tends to be a flu-like illness, occasionally leading to developing into a potentially lethal complication which is described as severe dengue. There is no specific treatment for dengue and therefore early detection and access to proper medical care will help to lower the fatality rates. There is also a dengue vaccine that has been licensed by a number of National Regulatory Authorities for using on people between 9-45 years old who are living in endemic settings.

INTENDED USE

Human Dengue virus-IgG ELISA kit is intended for in-vitro quantitative detection of IgG class antibodies to Dengue virus using human serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit to diagn. > 90%.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum detection sensitivity level of human Dengue virus IgG using this human Dengue virus-IgG ELISA kit was to diagn. > 90%. The dynamic assay range for this kit is to a 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.
