Infectious diseases are caused by subcellular infectious entities (prions, viruses), prokaryotic bacteria, eukaryotic fungi and protozoans, metazoan animals, such as parasitic worms (helminths), and some arthropods. These organisms invade and colonize the host tissues, induce the immune system of the host to generate antibodies specifically against the organisms.
These antibodies can be detected and measured by immunoassay such as ELISA for the determination of infectious diseases. IBL-America offers a broad range of infectious disease ELISA kits for the detection of human IgG, IgA and IgM antibodies to bacterial, viral, and parasite antigens. These ELISA kits feature high sensitivity and specificity, simple and robust methods, ready-to-use reagents, and reasonable assay time. They can be used for microbiology and infectious disease research and applications.
