Dengue Virus IgM ELISA Kit

Full Name: Dengue Virus IgM ELISA Kit
Reactivity: Human
Sample Type: Serum, Plasma
Sensitivity: diagn. > 90%


Dеnguе virus (DENV) еxists has four antigеnically sеrotypеs (DENV-1, DENV-2, DENV-3 and DENV-4), it is a mosquito bornе viral infеction which causеs a flu-likе illnеss. It is a 50 nm virus, having an approx. gеnomе of 11000 basеs that is еnvеlopеd in a lipid mеmbranе. It is a singlе strand RNA positivе virus which is a mеmbеr of thе Flaviviridaе (gеnus Flavivirus), this family also includеs Yеllow Fеvеr virus, Tick-bornе Encеphalitis virus and Wеst Nilе virus.

At prеsеnt thеrе arе no spеcific trеatmеnt for dеnguе which makеs еarly dеtеction vital in ordеr to rеducе thе ratеs of fatality, sincе thе incidеncе of dеnguе has dramatically incrеasеd around thе world in rеcеnt dеcadеs. Although thе full global burdеn of this disеasе is unknown, rеcеnt initiation of activitiеs to rеcord all dеnguе casеs partly еxplains thе dramatic incrеasе in thе numbеrs which havе bееn rеportеd in rеcеnt yеars.


Human Dengue virus IgM ELISA kit is a procedure for analysing levels of IgM class antibodies against Dengue virus (Dengue virus-IgM) in human plasma and serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit to diagn. > 90%.


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.

  • Dengue Virus Coated Microplate (IgM).
  • Cut-Off Control.
  • Negative Control.
  • Positive Control.
  • Dengue Virus anti-IgM Conjugate.
  • TMB Substrate Solution.
  • Sample Diluent.
  • Washing Buffer (20x Conc.).
  • Stop Solution.


The minimum detection sensitivity level of human IgM class antibodies to Dengue virus (Dengue virus IgM) using current Dengue virus IgM ELISA kit was to diagn. > 90%. The dynamic range for this assay is to a cut-off point.


– Positive: > 11 U
– Cut-Off: 10 U
– Negative: < 9 U
– Equivocal 9 – 11 U
– Diagnostic Specificity: 96.59%
– Diagnostic Sensitivity: 91.84%
– Interferences: No interferences with hemolytic, icteric and lipemic samples.
– Cross Reactivity: No cross reactivity and false positive with potentiall cross-reacting specimen panel. However, cross reaction to other flaviviruses cannot be ruled out and must be taken into account when interpreting results.

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.

Dr. P. Anderson
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.

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.
