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.

 

HCV ELISA KIT – TWO KINDS OF TESTS

This HCV ELISA Kit is available in two unique formats.   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. This particular HCV ELISA Kit is intended for screening blood donors and diagnosing patients related to infection with hepatitis C virus.  This particular HCV ELISA Kit employes solid phase, indirect ELISA assay for detection of antibodies to HCV in a two-step incubation procedure. This HCV ELISA Kit is intended for in vitro use only.  This HCV ELISA kit is intended ONLY for testing of individual serum or plasma samples. Do not use it for testing of cadaver samples, saliva, urine or other body fluids, or pooled (mixed) blood.

 

The other HCV ELISA Kit, also known as HCV IgM EIA kit,  is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for qualitative detection of IgM-class antibodies to hepatitis C virus in human serum or plasma. This HCV ELISA Kit is intended for clinical diagnosis, management and follow-up of patients related to infection with hepatitis C virus.  The HCV ELISA Kit is a two-step incubation, indirect principle procedure.  This HCV ELISA Kit for IgM-class antibodies is intended for in vitro use only.

HIV ELISA KIT (ANTI-HIV 1+2 ELISA KIT) – CE APPROVED*

The HIV ELISA KIT ( Anti-HIV 1+2 ELISA Kit ) is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA kit) intended for qualitative detection of antibodies to Human Immunodeficiency Viruses (HIV) type 1(group M – O) or type 2 in human serum or plasma samples. This HIV ELISA Kit can be utilized for screening of blood donors and/or as an aid in the diagnosis of clinical conditions related to infection with HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 (the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome – AIDS).

 

Serological evidence of infection with HIV may be obtained by using this HIV ELISA Kit in order to test for presence of HIV antigens or antibodies in serum of individuals suspected for HIV infection.  Antigen can generally be detected from this HIV ELISA Kit during both acute phase and the symptomatic phase of AIDS only. The antibodies to (HIV-1) and/or (HIV-2) can be detected throughout virtually the whole infection period, starting at or shortly after the acute phase and lasting till the end stage of AIDS. Therefore, the use of highly sensitive antibody assays, like this HIV ELISA Kit, is the primary approach in serodiagnosis of HIV infection.  Apart from sexual transmission, the principal route of infection with HIV is blood transfusion.  HIV be can present both in cellular and cell-free fractions of human blood. Therefore, all donations of blood or plasma should be tested, using kits like these HIV ELISA Kits, due to the risk of HIV transmission through contaminated blood. This can be effectively achieved by testing for the antibodies to HIV-1 and HIV-2 by using a highly sensitive HIV ELISA Kit test like the ones offered by Diagnostic Automation/Cortez Diagnostics. Inc.

 

HIV 1+2 ELISA is a two step incubation antigen “sandwich” enzyme immunoassay kit, (HIV ELISA Kit) which uses polystyrene microwell strips pre-coated with recombinant HIV antigens expressed in E.coli (recombinant HIV-1gp41, gp120, and recombinant HIV-2 gp-36). Patient’s serum or plasma sample from this HIV ELISA KIt, is added, and during the first incubation step, the specific HIV1/2 antibodies will be captured inside the wells if present. The microwells are then washed to remove unbound serum proteins.  A second set of recombinant antigens conjugated to the enzyme Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP-Conjugate) and expressing the same epitopes as the pre-coated antigens is added, and during the second incubation on this HIV ELISA Kit test, they will bind to the captured antibody. The microwells on the HIV ELISA KIt are washed to remove unbound conjugate, and chromogen solutions are added into the wells. In wells containing the antigen-antibody-antigen (HRP) “sandwich” immunocomplex, the colorless chromogens are hydrolyzed by the bound HRP conjugate to a blue colored product. The blue color on this HIV ELISA Kit test turns yellow after the reaction is stopped with sulfuric acid. The amount of color intensity can be measured and it is proportional to the amount of antibody captured in the wells of this HIV ELISA Kit test and to the sample respectively. Wells containing samples negative for anti-HIV 1/2 remain colorless on this HIV ELISA Kit test.

 

* this HIV ELISA Kit is certified for use in Europe and any other country in the world, except the United States.

 

HIV ELISA KIT (HIV 1,2 Ag/Ab) ELISA Kit*

The HIV ELISA KIT -  HIV Ag &Ab is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for qualitative determination of antigens or antibodies to Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) type 1 and/or type 2 in human serum or plasma. The method is also known as 4th generation ELISA for HIV detection. This HIV ELILSA Kit is intended for screening of blood donors and as an aid for the diagnosis of clinical conditions related to infection with HIV-1and/or HIV-2 e.g. the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

 

The human immunodeficiency viruses type 1 and type 2 are the etiological agents of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and related conditions. HIV has been isolated from patients with AIDS, AIDS related complex (ARC) and from healthy individuals at high risk for AIDS. Infection with HIV is followed by an acute flu-like illness. This phase may remain unnoticed and the relationship to HIV infection may not be clear in many cases. The acute phase is typically followed by an asymptomatic carrier state, which progresses to clinical AIDS in about 50% of infected individuals within 10 years after seroconversion. Serological evidence of infection with HIV may be obtained by testing (using the HIV ELISA Kit) for presence of HIV antigens or antibodies in serum of individuals suspected for HIV infection.  Antigens can generally be detected on this HIV ELISA Kit test during both acute phase and the symptomatic phase of AIDS only. The Antibodies to HIV-1 and/or HIV-2 can be detected, using this HIV ELISA Kit, throughout virtually the whole infection period, starting at, or shortly after the acute phase and lasting till the end stage of AIDS.
