Human rubella IgG ELISA kit is a method intended for analysing in-vitro quantitative levels of human IgG antibodies against rubella (rubella IgG) virus in samples of serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 0.38 IU/ml.
Rubella virus belongs to the family Togaviridae, it is between 40-80 nm, single-stranded, positive-sense, spherical RNA virus which contains hemagglutinin surface projections. It is made up of three major structural polypeptides and is the only serotype which has been identified. Rubella (also known as German measles) is a common mild disease that can be characterised by a rash, it can be transmitted through direct or droplet contact with respiratory secretions. When rubella virus infects susceptible women during the early of pregnancy, it can be transmitted to the fetus which could lead to possible birth defects. In general, it is found to affects children and adolescents throughout the worldwide, it can also affect young adults. Laboratory methods which can be used to detecting rubella include ELISA assays, hemagglutination inhibition test (HIT) and hemolysis-in-gel test. The IgG test is helpful in determining immunity, whereas virus-specific IgM antibodies detection is crucial in measuring a fresh infection.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgG antibodies to rubella virus (rubella-IgG) using current human rubella IgG ELISA kit was 0.38 IU/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 0 – 500 IU/ml.
