Candida Albicans IgG ELISA Kit

Full Name: Candida Albicans IgG ELISA Kit
Reactivity: Human
Sample Type: Plasma, Serum
Sensitivity: 1.11 U/ml


Candida albicans is a polymorphic fungus, meaning it can grow in different morphological forms including oval yeast cells, pseudohyphae, and true hyphae. The oval yeast cells reproduce asexually by budding off daughter cells. Pseudohyphae form by elongation of yeast cells into tube-like structures attached end-to-end. True hyphae are long filamentous structures with parallel-sided walls.

C. albicans transitions between these forms in response to environmental conditions and cues. Switching to the hyphal form is associated with increased virulence and tissue invasion. Biofilms of C. albicans on medical devices like catheters can serve as reservoirs for infection. C. albicans has factors like adhesins and invasins that facilitate attachment and penetration of host tissues. Its cell wall is composed of chitin, beta-glucans, and mannoproteins. Secreted aspartyl proteases and phospholipases allow degradation of host molecules.


Human Candida albicans IgG ELISA kit is a method for measuring in-vitro amounts of human IgG antibodies to Candida albicans (Candida IgG) using serum and plasma samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.11 U/ml.


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.

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.
