Human helicobacter pylori IgG ELISA kit is designed for detecting in-vitro quantitative levels of human IgG antibodies against helicobacter pylori in serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.16 U/ml.
Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a gram negative bacteria which is usually associated with stomach cancers (especially non-cardia gastric cancer). It has the ability to enter the body and attack the lining of the stomach, which is functioning to protect from the acid used to digest food. Prolonged infection can lead to the development of ulcers, excess bleeding and prevention of food moving through the digestive tract. H. pylori are helix-shaped bacteria which are also called curved rods, having a diameter of 0.5μm and length 3μm. They are detected using serologically methods such as ELISA assay or by Western Blot, which makes it possible to diagnose acute infections.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgG antibodies to helicobacter pylori IgG using current human helicobacter pylori IgG ELISA kit was 1.16 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.0 – 150.0 U/ml.
