Aspergillus fumigatus IgM ELISA Kit (55R-RE56121)

ELISA kit for detection of Aspergillus fumigatus IgM in the research laboratory

Applications ELISA
Assay Information The Aspergillus fumigatus IgM antibody test kit is based on the principle of the enzyme immunoassay (EIA). Aspergillus antigen is bound on the surface of the microtiter strips. Diluted patient serum or ready-to-use standards are pipetted into the wells of the microtiter plate. A binding between the IgM antibodies of the serum and the immobilized Aspergillus antigen takes place. After a one hour incubation at room temperature, the plate is rinsed with diluted wash solution, in order to remove unbound material. Then ready-to-use anti-human-IgM peroxidase conjugate is added and incubated for 30 minutes. After a further washing step, the substrate (TMB) solution is pipetted and incubated for 20 minutes, inducing the development of a blue dye in the wells. The color development is terminated by the addition of a stop solution, which changes the color from blue to yellow. The resulting dye is measured spectrophotometrically at the wavelength of 450 nm. The concentration of the IgM antibodies is directly proportional to the intensity of the color. NOTE that samples containing hyper-immune levels of anti-human IgG antibodies may cause false positive results in this assay. Any patient samples testing positive should be pre-diluted with IgG adsorbent and re-tested to confirm elevated levels of IgM.

General Information

Biological Significance Aspergillus species of known pathogenicity to man are Aspergillus fumigatus, A. flavus, A. niger, A. terreus and A. nidulans. The most common pathogen of this genus is A. fumingatus which occurs in hay, grain, rotten plants and birds faeces. The main opportunistic invasive fungial infections are the candidal mycosis followed by aspergillosis. Generally infections with Aspergillus spp. are airborne.
