Key Features and Values
– Same sample type can be used across all assays to simplify inclusion into routine serology work-up
– Ready to use reagents reduces hands-on time for assay preparation
– Long shelf life cost-effective solution by reducing wastage due to expired kits
– Suitable for inclusion on automated plate systems simplifies scale-up of test volume
– Supported by a complete panel of assays for diagnosis of SLE and APS
Anti dsDNA IgG kit is an indirect solid phase enzyme immunometric assay (ELISA) designed for the quantitative measurement of IgG class antibodies directed against dsDNA in human serum or plasma. Anti dsDNA IgG is intended for laboratory use only.
Anti dsDNA IgG test is used for initial diagnosis of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) and for diagnosis of SLE different diseases. Besides the determination of high titers of antinuclear antibody (ANA), the determination of autoantibodies against dsDNA is one of the ACR criteria (American College of Rheumatology) for the diagnosis of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE). The determination of the concentration of antibodies can be used to monitor treatment success and predict possible attacks of the disease (SLE).
