Influenza A IgG ELISA Kit


Human influenza A IgG ELISA kit is designed for detecting in-vitro quantitative amounts of human IgG antibodies to influenza A (influenza-A IgG) in serum and plasma samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.1 U/ml.


There are four different types of influenza viruses (A, B, C and D) and only types A and B are responsible for causing human diseases. In general, wild aquatic birds are the natural host for majority of influenza A type viruses (such as swans, geese, ducks, shorebirds and gulls). Influenza A viruses can be divided into subtypes, either hemagglutinin (HA) or neuraminidase (NA). Currently, there are 18 HA subtypes and 11 NA subtypes which have been identified, also it is possible to have a large number of different combinations of HA and NA proteins. However, only two influenza A virus subtypes (for example H1N1 and H3N2) are presently found to be in general circulation among people. Influenza viruses belonging to the family Orthomyxoviridae and also known as the flu.


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.

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

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.

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.

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.
