Toxoplasma IgM ELISA Kit

Full Name: Toxoplasma IgM ELISA Kit
Reactivity: Human
Sample Type: Serum, Plasma
Sensitivity: 1.31 U/ml


Toxoplasma gondii is an oligate intracellular, parasitic alveolate which can lead to toxoplasmosis. The initial infection can lead to stimulating IL-2 and IFN-γ through the innate immune system. It is essential for IFN-γ to be continuously formed since this is responsible for controlling the chronic and the acute infections by T. gondii.

There are some recent publication indicating it be associated to some neurological disorders for example schizophrenia and a number of bipolar disorders, it has also be suggested that subtle or personality behavioural changes are possible in infected humans.


Human toxoplasma IgM ELISA kit can be used for analysing in-vitro amounts of human IgM antibodies against toxoplasma gondii (toxoplasma-IgM) using plasma and serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.31 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.

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.
