Trichinella Spiralis IgG ELISA Kit

Full Name: Trichinella Spiralis IgG ELISA Kit
Reactivity: Human
Sample Type: Serum, Plasma
Sensitivity: Diagn. 100.0%.


Trichinella spiralis (also referred to as pork worm) is a nematode parasite which can be found in pigs, horses, rodents, bears and in humans and they are responsible for causing trichinosis disease. Four other species have also been recognised (T. britovi, T. pseudospiralis, T. native and T. nelsoni) that are found worldwide in a large number of omnivorous and carnivorous animals. Trichinella species is the smallest parasite that can be found in humans and it is known to display an unusual lifecycle.

The small adult worms are able to mature in the small intestine of the host, each female adult produced many batches of larvae that are able to bore through the intestinal wall before entering the blood stream and the lympahatic system in order to be transported to the striated muscles. Once they have reached the muscle, they become enclosed in a capsule (known as encyst). Humans can be infected by trichinella spiralis through eating infected pork, horsemeat and other carnivores (such as cat, fox and bear). The Infection may be detected using methods such as Microscopy, muscle biopsy and Serology (detect antibodies using ELISA assays).


Human trichinella spiralis IgG ELISA kit is designed for measuring in-vitro concentrations of human IgG antibodies against trichinella spiralis (trichinella-IgG) using samples of plasma and serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of diagn. 100.0%.


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.

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.
