Anti-dsDNA IgA ELISA Kit (Anti-Double Stranded DNA)


Human anti-dsDNA IgA ELISA kit is intended for in vitro quantitative analysis of anti IgA autoantibodies against anti double stranded DNA antibodies (anti ds-DNA IgA, anti-dsDNA IgA) in human serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.0 U/ml.


Anti-dsDNA antibodies belong to a family of anti-nuclear antibodies (ANA), primarily associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and their target antigen is double stranded DNA. There are a number different assay formats which can be used in the detection and quantification anti dsDNA antibodies. Some examples of these include flow cytometry, ELISA/EIA, Farr assay, microarrays and polyethylene glycol assay.

The presence of anti-dsDNA antibodies often is an indication of more serious lupus (for example lupus nephritis) and when the disease is active, elevated levels anti dsDNA antibodies are often present. In patients that suffer from lupus nephritis, a high concentration of anti-dsDNA is often linked with ongoing inflammation and possible damage to the kidneys. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis have also been found to develop anti dsDNA antibodies but this tends to be treatment related.


All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

The minimum detection sensitivity level of anti-dsDNA IgA (anti double stranded DNA antibodies, anti dsDNA IgA) using current human anti-dsDNA IgA ELISA kit was 1.0 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 12.5 – 200.0 U/ml.

Your secretory IgA ELISA gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

L. Johnston
PhD Student / University of Glasgow

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.

Lecturer / University College London (UCL)

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.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

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.
