Measles (also called rubeola), is an extremely contagious viral disease which can be transmitted by respiratory secretions. The measles virus is a negative sense, single stranded enveloped RNA virus that belongs to the Morbillivrus (Paramyxovirdae family). The virus is able to infect cells in the lungs and those that are at the back of the throat, causing symptoms such as sore throat, dry cough, a runny nose, tiny white spots inside the mouth, a high fever, red eyes and a characteristic rash. Two of the most common methods which are used for detecting measles infection are: antibody testing (IgG and IgM) and viral islation detection (RT-PCR).
Human measles-IgG ELISA kit is intended for analysing in-vitro quantitative levels of human IgG antibodies against measles virus using plasma or serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.35 U/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human measles virus IgG using this human measles-IgG ELISA kit was 1.35 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 1.0 – 250.0 U/ml.
