Schistosoma ELISA Assay Kit Background Information:
Schistosomiasis (also known as bilharzia, bilharziosis or snail fever) is a collective name of parasitic diseases caused by several species of trematodes belonging to the genus Schistosoma. Snails serve as the intermediary agent between mammalian hosts. Individuals within developing countries who cannot afford proper water and sanitation facilities are often exposed to contaminated water containing the infected snails. Although it has a low mortality rate, schistosomiasis often is a chronic illness that can damage internal organs and, in children, impair growth and cognitive development. The urinary form of schistosomiasis is associated with increased risks for bladder cancer in adults. Schistosomiasis is the second most socioeconomically devastating parasitic disease after malaria.

Schistosoma ELISA Test Principle:
The microwells are coated with Schistosoma recombinant antigen. During the first incubation with the diluted patients sera, antibodies which are reactive with the antigen will bind to the coated wells. After washing, the Enzyme Conjugate is added. The Enzyme Conjugate will then bind to these antibodies. After another series of washes, in the presence of this enzyme complex and peroxide, a substrate is added, and as a result of this combination, the substrate color will turn blue. The reaction is ended with the stop solution, and what appears is a yellow color instead of the blue. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.

Strongyloides IgG ELISA Assay Kit Background Information
The parasite Strongyloides stercoralis is the causative agent for Strongyloidiasis disease. These parasites are endemic to tropical and semi-tropical environs, but are also found in various regions throughout the world. The parasite is known as an intestinal nematode which invades the body through exposed skin. Intestinal problems occur, such as diarrhea, but in more severe cases where the patients immune system may be compromised, meningitis or septic shock may develop. The Strongyloides ELISA kit is an especially appropriate serological test to use if the infection occurs outside the intestine where it is important to keep the disease isolated from other conditions, such as hemotologic malignancies.

Strongyloides IgG ELISA Test Principle
The principle of the Strongyloides ELISA test is a three-incubation process whereby the first incubation involves the coating of the wells with Strongyloides antigen. During this step, any antibodies that are reactive with the antigen, will bind to the coated wells. After wash enzyme conjugate is added. During this second incubation, the enzyme conjugate will bind to any antibodies present. Then, the chromogen TMB is added. With the presence of enzyme conjugate and the peroxidase causing the consumption of peroxide, the chromogen changes to a blue color. The blue color turns to a bright yellow color after the addition of the stop solution, which ends the reaction. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.

3. EIA kit Microplate Washer
4. EIA kit Microplate Reader with a 450 nm/620 - 650 nm filter

Chagas ELISA kit Background Information:
Trypanosoma cruzi is a protozoan parasite, which is the causative agent of Chagas disease. This disease ranges from southern United States to Northern Argentina and Chile. The disease is transmitted to humans through the bite wound caused by reduviid bugs, blood transfusions, and in newborns, infection in utero. In acute infections, there may be few or no symptoms of the disease. In chronic infections, there may be inflammatory cardiomyopathy, or severe dilation of the esophagus or colon known as megadisease.

Chagas ELISA Test Principle:
The principle of the Chagas IgG ELISA test involves a two-step incubation procedure. The antibodies in the patient serum bind to the antigens in the test well in the course of the first incubation stage. After this, the enzyme complex binds to the antigen-antibody complex, which occurs in the second incubation step. The unbound enzymes are then removed through repeated washings. In the presence of this enzyme complex and peroxide, a substrate is added, and as a result of this combination, the substrate color will turn blue. The reaction is ended with the stop solution, and what appears is a yellow color instead of the blue. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.

3. EIA kit Microplate Washer
4. EIA kit Microplate Reader with a 450 nm and a 620 - 650 nm filter

Cysticercosis ELISA kit Background Information:
The causative agents of Taenia solum infection are generally associated with contaminated food, infected workers, gastric reflux in tapeworm carriers, or contaminated water. These contamination routes are generally created by ingestion of T. solum eggs. Cysticercosis is known as an infection of the larval form (cysticeri) of Taenia in organs or tissues. Areas most affected by the infection revolve around the central nervous system. In addition, Cysticercosis can cause seizures and cranial pressure in the brain. This Cysticercosis ELISA test should not be the sole method of diagnosis. Because of possible cross reactions with Echinococcosis, other testing procedures should be done so that the Echinococcus infection can be ruled out. Even though cyst vesicular antigen aids in sensitivity and specificity, other non-serological tests are recommended to verify accurate results of the T. solum infection.
Cysticercosis ELISA Test Principle
Before the first incubation, the microwells are coated with T. solum cyst antigen. The patient sera is added, and if there are any antibodies present, they will bind to the wells during the first incubation. Next, the wells must be washed of any test sample, and added to the wells at this point is the Enzyme Conjugate. During the second incubation, the Enzyme Conjugate will bind to any antibodies present. Then a chromogen TMB is added and color develops.

Dengue IgG Elisa Kit Background Information
Dengue fever, caused by any of the four serotypes of dengue virus, is endemic in Southeast Asia as well as South and Central America. Repeat infection with a second type of dengue virus is thought to cause dengue hemorrhagic fever in about 10 percent of infected people. Dengue antibodies do not confer immunity beyond 3-6 weeks to a second dengue type. Symptoms of classical dengue fever, following a 5-8 day incubation period, include rash, severe headache, nausea, vomiting, chills, malaise, macular rash and may include lymphadenopathy. Hemorrhagic dengue fever involves increased blood vessel permeability which can lead to shock and death in about 10% of reported cases. Dengue fever can only be treated by supportive care and is prevented by mosquito control. In primary infections, circulating IgM antibody to the viral coat proteins is detected 5-6 days after the onset of illness, and gradually decreases within 1-2 months of onset. IgG antibody to dengue virus is detected approximately 14 days after onset in primary infections, and by day 2 in secondary infections. In secondary infections, IgM antibody may reappear but gradually diminishes, while IgG antibody persists, often at high titer. These patterns of dengue antibody development permit serological differentiation of primary and secondary infections. Characteristically, acute patients with primary infections have a higher IgM:IgG ratio than are found in secondary infections. Patients with secondary infections generally have higher IgG levels. Acute or recent infections are identified by a rise in antibody titer as well as high IgM levels.

Dengue IgG Elisa Test Principle:
The microwells are coated with purified dengue virus antigen from cell cultured type 1-4 dengue. During the first incubation with the diluted patients sera, any antibodies which are reactive with the antigen will bind to the coated wells. After washing to remove the rest of the sample, the Enzyme Conjugate is added. If antibodies have been bound to the wells, the Enzyme Conjugate will then bind to these antibodies. After another series of washes, a chromogen (tetramethylbenzidine or TMB) is added. If the Enzyme Conjugate is present, the peroxidase will catalyze a reaction that consumes the peroxide and turns the chromogen from clear to blue. Addition of the Stop Solution ends the reaction and turns the blue color to a bright yellow color. The reaction may then be read visually or with an ELISA reader.
