Schistosoma mansoni is often called blood-flukes, a human parasite which belongs to the genus of trematodes. It is a significant agent for intestinal schistosomiasis disease in humans. This is widely regarded as second only to malaria as a world health problem and is causing a considerable drain on the endemic countries. The parasite is able to burrow itself into the skin upon contacting humans, where it matures into a schistosomula and this is followed by migrating to the lungs or the liver in order to mature into the adult form. The intermediate host for this parasite is usually freshwater snail, whereas the definitive host is a human. Heavy infestation are found to lead to liver, spleen and lymph node enlargement, fever and chills.
Human schistosoma mansoni IgG ELISA kit is intended for analysing in-vitro quantitative levels of human IgG class antibodies against schistosoma mansoni using plasma or serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of diagn. 87%.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of schistosoma mansoni IgG using this human schistosoma mansoni IgG ELISA kit was diagn. 87%. The dynamic assay range for this kit is to a specific cut-off point.
