Strongyloides IgG/IgM ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 21 September, 2017.

BACKGROUND

Strongyloides (common name threadworm) is a human parasite roundworm which is responsible for strongyloidiasis disease. S. stercoralis is one of the most clinically important pathogenic species in humans and some of the distinctive characteristics of this parasite include ability to replicate and persist within a host for decades without any symptoms and having a potential to causing life-threatening infections within an immunocompromised host. Some of the symptoms of the infection are abdominal cramping, watery diarrhea and urticarial rash. During uncomplicated chronic infections, the larvae is able to migrate to the skin where it is able to cause cutaneous strongyloidiasis (also called larva currens). The adult parasitic stage occurs in the mucosa tunnels of the small intestine. Locating juvenile larvae (filariform or rhabditiform) can be confirmed using recent stool samples for analysis, other methods utilised include culturing fecal samples on agar plates, direct fecal smears, duodenal fumigation and serodiagnosis through ELISA.

INTENDED USE

Human strongyloides IgG/IgM ELISA kit is intended for detecting in-vitro quantitative amounts of IgG and IgM antibodies against strongyloides using human plasma and serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of diagn. 87.9%.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum detection sensitivity level of strongyloides IgM and IgG using this human strongyloides IgG/IgM ELISA kit was diagn. 87.9%. The dynamic assay range for this kit is to a specific cut-off point.

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.
