Zika Virus IgG Capture ELISA Kit

  • Created on the 28 September, 2017.

BACKGROUND

Zika virus disease is predominately spread by mosquitoes, however, there have been some cases of sexual transmission. In general, it is responsible for mild infections which tend not to be harmful. The virus can cause birth defect such as microcephaly (brain damage and underdeveloped heads) and have also been linked to Guillain-Barre syndrome (a condition where the immune system is attacking the nerves). There have been some studies that have indicated that this zika virus can be found in blood, fluid in the eye, saliva, semen and urine of infected individuals. The incubation period is still not clear (most likely a few days), the symptoms are similar to many other arbovirus infections (such as dengue) and these include skin rashes, malaise, headache, conjunctivitis, joint and muscle pain. These symptoms are often quite mild and can last between 2-7 days.

INTENDED USE

Human zika virus-IgG ELISA kit can be used for detecting in-vitro quantitative concentrations of human IgG capture antibodies against zika virus in plasma and serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of diagn. 99.6%.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum detection sensitivity level of human zika virus IgG capture using this human zika virus-IgG ELISA kit was diagn. 99.6%. The dynamic assay range for this kit was 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.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

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.
