Campylobacter ELISA Kit Background Information:
Infection by thermophilic Campylobacter species is a leading cause of human gastroenteritis. Of the various species of Campylobacter, C. Jejuni, C. coli and C. lari, are the species most often associated with human illness. Campylobacter are often passed to humans through handling or consumption of contaminated food, particularly foods of animal origin (see the Campylobacter Food ELISA Kit). Recently, human infection with Campylobacter has been implicated in the induction of Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) and reactive arthritis. GBS is a debilitating and potentially fatal neurological disease that produces paralysis. Campylobacter species are gram negative, motile curved or spiral rods that require highly specialized growth conditions. Typical cultivation entails pre-enrichment and enrichment steps in broth, followed by isolation on a selective solid medium. Of particular importance in the cultivation of Campylobacter is the requirement for a micro aerobic atmosphere.
Campylobacter ELISA Test Principle:
The principle of the Campylobacter Test is a double antibody (sandwich immunoassay utilizing specific anti-Campylobacter antibodies coated to micro wells. After addition of the sample and the enzyme conjugate to the Campylobacter Test, a positive reaction (indicating the presence of Campylobacter antigen) produces a deep blue color. Addition of the Stop Solution on the Campylobacter test, ends the assay and turns the blue color to yellow. The results of the Campylobacter test may be read visually or with an ELISA reader.
Notable features of the Parasitology ELISA Kits:
User-friendly directions and explanation of test procedures
