Human mycobacterium tuberculosis IgM ELISA kit is an in-vitro quantitative procedure for detecting human IgM antibodies against mycobacterium tuberculosis in plasma or serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.22 U/ml.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) is a gram negative bacteria which is non spore forming and contains a thick lipid rich cell wall. It is unlike other bacteria where it can take anything from 15-20 hours to divide whereas Escherichia coli takes 20 minutes. At present there are at least nine different species that have been identified and the target for the infection is mostly the lungs, other organs which can also be affected include: the brain, intestinal tract and kidneys. The following assay method is designed for measuring IgM antibodies using a cocktail of highly pure proteins which can allow the analysis of an immune response against the bacteria. Specific antigens are prepared either by purification of natural or by recombinant methods.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgM antibodies to mycobacterium tuberculosis using current human mycobacterium tuberculosis IgM ELISA kit was 1.22 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.0 – 100.0 U/ml.
