Yersinia Enterocolitica IgG ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 28 September, 2017.


Human Yersinia enterocolitica IgG ELISA kit is a protocol designed for analysing in-vitro quantitative amounts of human IgG antibodies to Yersinia enterocolitica using samples of serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.92 U/ml.


Yersinia enterocolitica is a bacillus shaped, gram negative bacterium which belongs to the Enterobacteriaceae family. The genus Yersinia also is made of 11 other species Y. pseudotuberculosis, Y. intermedia, Y. enterocolitica, Y. rohdei, Y. aldovae, Y. bercovieri, Y. kristensenii, Y. mollaretii, Y. ruckeri, Y. pestis and Y. frederiksenii. Enterobacteriaceae have been identified to cause pseudoappendicitis, terminal ileitis, enterocolitis, mesenteric lymphadenitis and acute diarrhea, which can also lead to fatal sepsis if it is spread systemically. Yersiniosis disease can be caused by Y. enterocolitica infection, predominately an animal-borne disease occurring in humans, cattle, deer, pig and birds. Some of the common test which can be used to diagnose a Yersinia enterocolitica infection include; observing stool cultures, tube agglutination, joint aspiration in specific cases, colonoscopy, computed tomography scanning imaging studies, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays and radioimmunoassays.


The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgG antibodies to Yersinia enterocolitica using current human Yersinia enterocolitica IgG ELISA kit was 1.92 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.0 – 180.0 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.
