Gliadin IgA ELISA Kit

Full Name: Gliadin IgA ELISA Kit
Reactivity: Human
Sample Type: Plasma, Serum
Sensitivity: 1.05 U/ml


Anti gliadin antibodies (AGA) are a prolamin that are produced in response to gliadin which are mainly found in wheat. It can be encoded by 3 different alleles AA, BB and DD, these are able to form gliadins that can slightly different – causing the body producing different antibodies. It is the main the component of gluten and this is very useful in the diagnosis of celiac disease (a gluten-induced enteropathy). Furthermore, serological techniques for measuring IgA and IgG antibodies against gliadin, endomysium and reticulin are becoming widely used for screening purposes.


Human gliadin IgA ELISA kit is designed for detecting in-vitro quantitative levels of IgA against gliadin (gliadin IgA) in human plasma and serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.05 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.

  • Microtiter Strips: 12 strips with 8 breakable wells each, coated with a gliadin antigen (purified gluten antigen from wheat).
  • Calibrator A (Negative Control): No IgA antibodies against gliadin.
  • Calibrator B (Cut-Off Standard): Low concentration of IgA antibodies against gliadin.
  • Calibrator C (Weak Positive Control): Medium concentration of IgA antibodies against gliadin.
  • Calibrator D (Positive Control): High concentration of IgA antibodies against gliadin.
  • Enzyme Conjugate: Containing anti-human-IgA-HRP (rabbit), in protein-containing buffer solution.
  • TMB Substrate Solution.
  • Stop Solution: 1 N acidic solution.
  • Sample Diluent.
  • Washing Buffer (10x).


The minimum detection sensitivity level of anti-gliadin IgA (gliadin IgA) using current gliadin IgA ELISA kit was 1.05 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.0 – 150.0 U/ml.

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.
