Mumps is highly contagious viral disease which usually spreads quickly among people living in close proximity. It is a linear negative sense, single stranded enveloped RNA virus, which can be transmitted by respiratory droplets or even direct contact with an infected individual. Mumps virus has only been infect and spread amongst humans. It can be prevented by infection of two doses of the mumps vaccine, this is included in the immunisation program for many developed countries. It is often give in combination with measles, rubella and varicella vaccine. The identification of mumps in the laboratory is usually carried out by detecting the infectious agent itself or through the identification of virus-specific antibodies. Besides the classical methods such as fixation, neutralisation and hemagglutination tests, there are now some modern procedures like enzyme immunoassay, radio immunoassay and immunofluorescence which are routinely being used.
Human mumps-IgG ELISA kit is a procedure designed for detecting in-vitro quantitative amounts of human IgG antibodies against mumps virus using serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.18 U/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human mumps virus IgG using this human mumps-IgG ELISA kit was 1.18 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 1.0 – 150.0 U/ml.
