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.
