SS-A 52 Ab ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 29 June, 2017.


Sjögren syndrome type A antigen (SS-A) is made up of a 52 kD and 60 kD protein antigens that are joined to the cytoplasmic RNA species. Anti-SS-A 52 can be found in patients having Sjögren’s syndrome, SLE and is some instances other autoimmune disorders. These are however, specifically associated to tRNA synthetases such as PL-7, PL-12, Jo-1, OJ and EJ. Many publication have also identified that approx. 10-50% of myositis is positive with SSA52 antibody.


Human SS-A 52 ELISA kit is designed for measuring in-vitro quantitative amounts of IgG autoantibodies to Sjögren syndrome type A antigen 52 (SS-A 52, anti SS-A 52) in human plasma or serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 0.5 U/ml.


The minimum detection sensitivity level of human Sjögren syndrome type A antigen 52 (anti SS-A 52, SS-A 52) IgG autoantibodies using this human SS-A 52 ELISA kit was 0.5 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 12.5 – 200.0 U/ml.

Your secretory IgA ELISA kit 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 kit performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA kits 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 kits. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
