Anti-IA2 ELISA Kit


Human anti-IA2 ELISA kit is a reliable quantitative procedure for measuring insulinoma associated 2 (anti-IA2) in human serum samples. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.95 u/ml.


Insulinoma associated 2 (anti-IA2) autoantibodies are found to be highly present in individuals that are in the pre-diabetic phase or those with new-onset type 1 diabetes. There is a direct correlation with the rapid progression to overt type 1 diabetes with the presence of autoantibodies to anti-IA2. It is a member of the tyrosine phosphatases protein family and shares sequence homology with the islet cell antigen 512. Found to be localised in the second defined recombinant islet cell antigen and the dense granules of pancreatic beta cells and the second defined recombinant islet cell antigen. The higher frequency of antibodies to insulinoma associated 2 can be explained by the presence of autoantibodies which are directed to the COOH terminus of human anti-IA2 and are lacking in the ICA512 molecule.

A combination of assays using insulinoma associated 2 (anti-IA2 autoantibodies) and GAD65 is seen as a highly relevant approach for assessing diabetes (type 1) in children and adolescence. It is possible to detect more than 90% of individuals that are at risk to diabetes (type 1) by performing a screen for human anti-IA2 autoantibodies and GAD65.


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.
