The Advantages Of ELISA Test And Its Application In Disease Viruses Diagnostic

What are the advantages of an ELISA test?

One of the greatest advantages of ELISA tests is the ability to obtain quick and accurate results.  All that is normally required is a simple blood sample that is obtained either through the arm or fingertip of a patient.  The fact that an ELISA kit can test not only for antibodies, but antigens as well, makes it a versatile tool for physicians, laboratories, and medical professionals all over the world.The ELISA tests have also found applications in the food industry in detecting food allergens, such as milk, peanuts, walnuts, almonds, and eggs.  ELISA tests can also be used in toxicology as a screen for certain classes of drugs.  Another advantage of using ELISA test kits is their high sensitivity.  ELISA Tests are favored over other testing options because not only are they more sensitive, but they are more cost effective.  Even more striking, is the applicability of the ELISA tests as convenient and easy-to-use HIV ELISA testing devices.

 

ELISA Tests and HIV ELISA Tests

Because ELISA tests can be performed to evaluate either the presence of antigen or the presence of antibody in a sample, it is a useful tool for determining serum antibody concentrations, such as with HIV ELISA tests.  The HIV ELISA test is usually the first one used to detect infection with HIV virus.  If antibodies to the HIV virus are present, or positive, the test is usually repeated to confirm the diagnosis.  If the ELISA test is negative, other tests are not usually needed.  The ELISA test generally has a low chance of having a false result after the first few weeks of HIV infection.  The specificity and high sensitivity of the HIV ELISA Test make it a widely acceptable kind of ELISA test since it is able to detect all the possible HIV infections.  The HIV ELISA Test was the first screening test widely used for the HIV virus because of its high sensitivity.  Use of the HIV ELISA test kit, in relation to HIV virus detection, can be intended both for screening of blood donors or as an aid for the diagnosis of clinical conditions related to infection with HIV virus.

HCV RAPID TESTS | HEPATITIS MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC TESTS

HCV RAPID TESTS – INEXPENSIVE – CONVENIENT – QUICK RESULTS

 

HCV Rapid Tests are vital diagnostic tools for clinics and hospitals to have if a hepatitis C infection is suspected.  These HCV Rapid tests can detect hepatitis C antibodies (anti-HCV) in human serum within minutes. In some regions, patients are tested where the blood is sent out and results are not confirmed until days later.  Unfortunately, in these instances, many patients do not return for results.  The HCV Rapid Test mitigates this recurring problem, and allows patients the opportunity to discuss diagnosis and treatment the same day of visit.  HCV Rapid Tests are safe, quick, and simple to use.  Some of the most effective means of detecting antibodies to hepatitis C virus are contained in these tests.  The anti-HCV Rapid Test is based on the principle of inter-second antibody enzyme immunoassay for the determination of anti-HCV in serum/plasma.  Recombinant HCV antigens are employed to specifically identify anti-HCV antibodies.  The tests are very sensitive and rapid – results are obtained in less than 20 minutes.

 

Because of epidemic proportions of Hepatitis C infection in some regions of the world, the global demand for highly effective HCV testing methods has increased.  Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc. a leading manufacturer and distributor of Drug Tests, Rapid Tests, and ELISA Tests worldwide, is pleased to offer inexpensive and easy-to-use HCV Rapid Tests – Hepatitis C Rapid Tests for distribution throughout the world.*  The HCV Rapid Tests are designed for the special needs of any health organization that is looking for accurate, safe, and cost-effective diagnostic testing methods to detect Hepatitis C infections.  Our inventory of top quality HCV Rapid Tests includes five distinct tests for detection of hepatitis C antibodies.  Three of these tests are HCV Rapid Test strips; the other two are in cassette format.  All HCV Rapid Tests are available worldwide, with the exception of the United States.  All five HCV Rapid tests are for in-vitro diagnostic use only.

HCV ELISA KIT – DETECTION OF HEPATITIS C VIRUS

 

How do doctors find hepatitis C antibodies in the blood? To determine if hepatitis C antibodies are in the blood, doctors use a screening test called ELISA, which stands for Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay.  There are many different ELISA tests, so doctors must use one specifically for hepatitis C.  This is where the HCV ELISA Kit comes in.  The HCV ELISA Kit will search the blood sample for the hepatitis C antibody.  This HCV ELISA Kit is very sensitive and picks up approximately 95% of people infected with hepatitis C antibodies.  If the HCV ELISA Kit test finds any hepatitis C antibodies, that means an HCV infection is present.  The HCV ELISA Kit is tempered by its sensitivity.  For example, if the HCV ELISA Kit tests negative, patients are most likely free of hepatitis C infection.  However, if the HCV ELISA Kit test is positive, there is a small possibility that the result could be incorrect, resulting in a “false-positive.”  False-positives on this HCV ELISA Kit usually indicate more testing is required.

Since the introduction in 1990 of anti-HCV screening of blood donations, like this HCV ELLISA Kit, the incidence of this infection in transfusion recipients has been significantly reduced. The first generation of HCV ELISA Kit tests showed limited sensitivity and specificity and was produced using recombinant proteins complementary to the NS4 (c100-3) region of the HCV genome as antigens.  Second generation HCV ELISA Kit tests, which included recombinant / synthetic antigens from the Core (c22) and nonstructural regions NS3 (c33c, c100-3) and NS4 (c100-3, c200), resulted in a remarked improvement in sensitivity and specificity. Clinical studies show that a significant amount of HCV infected individuals develop antibodies to NS5 non-structural protein of the virus.  For this, the third generation HCV ELISA Kit tests include antigens from the NS5 region of the viral genome in addition to NS3 (c200), NS4 (c200) and the Core (c22).  Third generation HCV ELISA KIT tests have improved sensitivity and shorten the time between infection with HCV and the appearance of detectable antibodies (window period) to 60 days.

USING HEPATITIS ELISA TEST KITS

(HCV ELISA KITS) to detect HEPATITIS C VIRUS

 

Los Angeles based Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc., a leading provider of Hepatitis ELISA Test Kits, offers top quality HCV ELISA kits at competitive prices and in a timely manner.  Our company is committed to offering the best quality HCV Elisa kits worldwide.  These convenient and easy-to-use HCV Elisa Kits (Hepatitis C ELISA Test Kits) can immediately detect any Hepatitis C infection.

 

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an envelope, single stranded positive sense RNA (9.5 kb) virus belonging to the family of Flaviviridae. Six major genotypes and series of subtypes of HCV have been identified. Isolated in 1989, HCV is now recognized as the major cause for transfusion associated non-A, non-B hepatitis. The disease is characterized with acute and chronic form although more than 50% of the infected individuals develop severe, life threatening chronic hepatitis with liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinomas. Since the introduction in 1990 of anti-HCV screening of blood donations, the incidence of this hepatitis C infection in transfusion recipients has been significantly reduced.

 

There are two kinds of HCV ELISA kits available through Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics, Inc.  One easy-to-use HCV ELISA Kit, also known as HCV ab ELISA Kit, is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for qualitative detection of IgG antibodies to hepatitis C virus in human serum or plasma. It is intended for screening blood donors and diagnosing patients related to infection with hepatitis C virus.  The other convenient HCV ELISA Kit is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for qualitative detection of IgM-class antibodies to hepatitis C virus in human serum or plasma. It is intended for clinical diagnosis, management and follow-up of patients related to infection with hepatitis C virus.

 

RESULTS OF HCV ELISA TESTS

 

 

HCV ELISA kit (HCV ab ELISA Kit)

This anti-HCV employs solid phase, indirect ELISA method for detection of antibodies to HCV in two-step incubation procedure. Polystyrene microwell strips are pre-coated with recombinant, highly immunoreactive antigens corresponding to the core and the non-structural regions of HCV (third generation HCV ELISA). During the first incubation step, anti-HCV specific antibodies, if present, will be bound to the solid phase pre-coated HCV antigens. The wells are washed to remove unbound serum proteins, and rabbit anti-human IgG antibodies (anti-IgG) conjugated to the enzyme horseradish peroxidase (HRP-Conjugate) is added. During the second incubation step, these HRP-conjugated antibodies will be bound to any antigen-antibody(IgG) complexes previously formed and the unbound HRP-conjugate is then removed by washing. Chromogen solutions containing Tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) and urea peroxide are added to the wells and in presence of the antigen-antibody-anti-IgG (HRP) immunocomplex, the colorless chromogens are hydrolyzed by the bound HRP conjugate to a blue-colored product. The blue color turns yellow after stopping the reaction with sulfuric acid. The amount of color intensity can be measured and it is proportional to the amount of antibody captured in the wells, and to the amount of antibody in the sample respectively. Wells containing samples negative for anti-HCV remain colorless.

 

HCV ELISA Kit (HCV IgM ELISA Kit)

This kit employs indirect ELISA assay for detection of IgM antibodies to HCV in two-step incubation procedure. Polystyrene microwell strips are pre-coated with recombinant, highly immunoreactive antigens corresponding to the core and non-structural regions of HCV. During the first incubation step, HCV-IgM specific antibodies, if present, will be bound to the solid phase pre-coated HCV antigens. The wells are washed to remove unbound materials, and then, rabbit anti-human IgM antibodies (anti-IgM) conjugated to horseradish peroxidase (HRP-Conjugate) are added. During the second incubation step, these labeled antibodies will be bound to any antigen-IgM complexes previously formed and the unbound HRP-Conjugat is removed by washing.  Chromogen solutions  containing tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) and urea peroxide are added to the wells and in presence of the antigen- antibody-anti-IgM (HRP) immunocomplex; the colorless chromogens are hydrolyzed by the bound HRP conjugate to a blue-colored product. The blue color turns yellow after stopping the reaction with sulfuric acid. The amount of color intensity can be measured and is proportional to the amount of antibody captured in the wells, and to the sample respectively. Wells containing samples negative for HCV-IgM remain colorless.
