autoimmune disease assay kit / IgG / IgM / serum
86032 - 86032/12
for autoimmune diseases
Immunoenzymatic method for the quantitative determination of IgG class antibodies and semiquantitative determination of IgM class to double stranded DNA (dsDNA) in human serum, using a disposable device applied on the Chorus and Chorus TRIO instruments. The test is based on the ELISA principle (Enzyme Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay) which uses the reaction between the antibodies present in the tested sample and the immobilized antigen bound to solid phases.The immunoglobulins bind to the antigen through incubation with diluted human serum.The disposable devices contain all the reagents to perform the test when applied on the Chorus instruments. The Chorus dsDNA-G is calibrated against reference sera from the CDC (Atlanta), the results are expressed in IU/ml. The Chorus dsDNA-M results are expressed in Arbitrary Units (AU/ml).
