Human gliadin IgA ELISA kit is designed for detecting in-vitro quantitative levels of IgA against gliadin (gliadin IgA) in human plasma and serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.05 U/ml.
Anti gliadin antibodies (AGA) are a prolamin that are produced in response to gliadin which are mainly found in wheat. It can be encoded by 3 different alleles AA, BB and DD, these are able to form gliadins that can slightly different – causing the body producing different antibodies. The following gliadin-IgA ELISA kit is useful in the analysis of patients following a gluten-free diet. Gliadin is the main the component of gluten and this is very useful in the diagnosis of celiac disease (a gluten-induced enteropathy). There are 3 subtypes: anti-gliadin IgA (found in approx. 80% of coeliac disease patients), anti-gliadin IgG (associated with non-celiac gluten sensitivity and coeliac disease) and anti-gliadin IgE (found in allergy related condition for example asthma, exercise-induced anaphylaxis and urticaria). Furthermore, serological techniques for measuring IgA and IgG antibodies against gliadin, endomysium and reticulin are becoming widely used for screening purposes.

The minimum detection sensitivity level of anti-gliadin IgA (gliadin IgA) using current human gliadin-IgA ELISA kit was 1.05 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.0 – 150.0 U/ml.
