Yersinia Enterocolitica IgM ELISA Kit


Human Yersinia enterocolitica IgM ELISA kit is intended for measuring in-vitro quantitative concentrations of human IgM-class antibodies against Yersinia enterocolitica using serum or plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.02 U/ml.


Yersinia enterocolitica consists of 11 other species: Y. enterocolitica, Y. pseudotuberculosis, Y. kristensenii, Y. mollaretii, Y. aldovae, Y. intermedia, Y. frederiksenii, Y. bercovieri, Y. pestis, Y. ruckeri and Y. rohdei. It is member of the Enterobacteriaceae family and is a gram-negative bacterium which is bacillus shaped. Y. enterocolitica can cause Yersiniosis disease and this is found to be an animal-borne disease which is usually present in human, pig, bird, cattle and deer. It can cause a number of symptoms such as enterocolitis, acute diarrhea, pseudoappendicitis, terminal ileitis and mesenteric lymphadenitis. Methods that have been used to study Yersinia enterocolitica infections include; colonoscopy, tube agglutination, analysing stool cultures, computed tomography scanning imaging studies, radio-immunoassays and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays.


The minimum detection sensitivity level of IgM antibodies to Yersinia enterocolitica using current human yersinia enterocolitica IgM ELISA kit was 1.02 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.0 – 110.0 U/ml.

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

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