Parasite Diseases

Parasites are organisms which are known to derive protection from other living organisms (known as hosts). These organisms obtain nutrients, live and even reproduce in the tissues or organs of the infected host. Many parasite infections are spread from host to host through the consumption of contaminated food or water and they are most frequent in areas where hygiene and sanitation are poor. There are also some parasites (hookworm) that can enter the skin through contact with contaminated dirt, whereas other such as malaria are transmitted by arthrop vectors. It is very rarely that they are transmitted via blood transfusions, shared needles or congenitally from mother to fetus.

There are 3 types of parasites: protozoa, helminths (worms), and ectoparasites (scabies and lice). Protozoa and helminths infections are responsible for substantial morbidity and mortality throughout the world. Some parasites are endemic in developing countries for example pinworm, enterobius vermicularis, toxoplasma gondii, trichomonas vaginalis, giardia intestinalis (lamblia) and cryptosporidium spp.

Parasitic infections are definitively diagnosed by identifying the parasites in the host tissue or excreta, in many cases this is not possible if the parasite disease is located in deep tissue. A more invasive approach may be required which could put the patient under more risk. Immunoassay detection can provide a useful non-invasive method to indicate whether an individual has or has not been infected by a particular parasite disease.

Your secretory IgA ELISA kit gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

L. Johnston
PhD Student / University of Glasgow

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

Dr. P. Anderson
Lecturer / University College London (UCL)

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.

Dr. C. Davies
Lead Scientists / AstraZeneca

You are my first point of contact when I am looking to purchase ELISA kits. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
