Leishmania Infantum IgG ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 23 August, 2017.

INTENDED USE

Human leishmania infantum IgG ELISA kit is intended for detecting in-vitro quantitative amounts of IgG antibodies against leishmania infantum using human serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of diagn. 91%.

BACKGROUND

Leishmania infantum is an intracellular protozoan parasite which is able to target dendritic cells and macrophages. In a number of classification it can be grouped into four speices: L. donovani, L. mexicana, L. viannia and L. tropica. L. infantum is found to be closely related to Leishmania donovani, with some researchers believing that they could be subspecies of each other. All the species are morphologically indistinguishable, which means that the organisms are usually assigned to species and sub-species based on their ecological characteristics, geographic origin and clinical syndrome they produce. They can also be grouped based on their tendency to cause mucocutaneous, visceral or cutaneous leishmaniasis. The pathogen can be spread by spread through the Lutzomyia genus, an insect vector and the sand flies of the Phlebotomus.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgG antibodies against L. infantum using current human leishmania infantum IgG ELISA kit was diagn. 91%. The dynamic range for this assay is to a specific cut-off point.

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.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.

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