RF ELISA Kit Background Information:
RFs are immunoglobulins of any isotype with antibody activity directed against antigenic sites on the Fc portion of IgG molecules. Because of its pentavalent structure and ability to cross-link immunoglobulin G antigen, IgM-RF is the main isotype identified by clinically available diagnostic assays for RF detection. Rheumatoid factors may exist as the mu, gamma, alpha, and epsilon isotypes. Rheumatoid factors are found in 1 to 4% of the general population. RFs are present in 75% of adult patients with the highest incidence of rheumatoid factors occurring in persons over 65 years of age and nearly all patients with Felty and Sjogren syndrome. The clinical correlation of an elevated rheumatoid factor should be interpreted cautiously. Increased titers may accompany a variety of acute immune responses, particularly viral infections and a number of other diseases infectious mononucleosis, tuberculosis, leprosy, various parasitic diseases, liver disease, sarcoidosis, and lymphoproliferative syndromes. The earliest tests and those still most widely used rely on the agglutinating properties of the IgM class of
rheumatoid factors, but enzyme immunoassays are more sensitive than agglutination and very specific due to use of purified antigen.

RF ELISA Test Principle:
Diagnostic Automation Rheumatoid Factor test uses the ELISA technique for the detection of IgM antibodies to IgG antigen. The purified antigen is bound to a solid phase microassay well. Patient serum samples to be assayed for antibody are first diluted and added to each well. If antibody is present in the patient's serum, antigen-antibody complexes are formed. After washing the unbound serum from the well, horseradish peroxidase conjugated anti-human IgM is added to the wells and allowed to incubate. The conjugate will bind to human antibody which is present. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.
