Poliomyelitis Virus IgG ELISA Kit


Human poliomyelitis virus IgG ELISA kit is a procedure for measuring in-vitro quantitative concentrations of human IgG antibodies against poliomyelitis virus (polio IgG) using samples of plasma or serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.4 U/ml.


Poliomyelitis (often known as polio or infantile paralysis) is caused through the infection by polivirus (PV), a family member of the genus Enterovirus. These are a group of RNA viruses which tend to colonise within the gastrointestinal tract (more specifically the oropharynx and the intestine). Poliomyelitis is highly contagious through the intestinal route (fecal-oral) and the oropharyngeal route (oral-oral), there is evidence that wild polioviruses can lead to infecting an entire human population within endemic areas.The disease can be prevented by using the polio vaccine but it could require many doses for the vaccine to be effective. The disease is usually diagnosed by finding the virus within the feces or using antibodies against it in the blood, also only in humans it is found to occur naturally.


All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgG antibodies to poliomyelitis virus (polio IgG) using current human poliomyelitis IgG ELISA kit was 1.4 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.0 – 150.0 U/ml.

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

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.
