Scrub Typhus IgM ELISA kit description:

Scrub Typhus IgM ELISA Kit is an immunosorbent assay to test for exposure to Orientia tsutsugamushi (OT; formerly Rickettsia). The Scrub Typhus IgM ELISA Kit is a qualitative, membrane-based immunoassay for the detection of IgG antibodies in human plasma/serum to OT derived recombinant antigen.

Materials Provided with Scrub Typhus IgM ELISA Kit:
1. S Typhus IgM EIA Plate: OT derived recombinant antigens
2. Sample Dilution Buffer for Scrub Typhus
3. Scrub Typhus IgM Positive Control
4. Scrub Typhus Negative Control
5. Ready to Use Enzyme Conjugate-HRP for Scrub Typhus IgM
6. 10X Wash Buffer
7. HRP Wash Solution
8. Liquid TMB Substrate
9. Stop Solution

Materials & Instrumentations required not included:
1. Precision pipettes
2. Distilled or deionized water
3. EIA kit Microplate Washer
4. EIA kit Microplate Reader with a 450 nm/620 - 650 nm filter

S Typhus IgM ELISA Assay Kit Background Information:
Scrub Typhus is an infectious disease that is caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi, formerly known as Rickettsia, a tiny parasite about the size of bacteria that belongs to the family Rickettsiaceae. A bite from the larval trombiculid mite, a parasite of rodents, will transmit the disease. An ulcer of the skin is characteristic of a bite from a trombiculid mite, followed by symptoms including fever, a spotted rash on the torso, and swelling of the lymph glands. Scrub typhus generally occurs after exposure to areas with secondary (scrub) vegetation, from which its name is derived. However, the disease can also be prevalent in sandy, mountainous, and tropical areas. Scrub Typhus is a worldwide illness, but particular to South East Asia and the Western Pacific. It accounts for approximately 20% of fever in some regions in South East Asia, where it is endemic. Illness lasts for a period of 10 to 12 days after the initial bite. With therapy, the fever will break within 36 hours, but if left untreated, complications or death may occur.

S Typhus IgM ELISA Test Principle:
Wells of each plate on the Scrub Typhus IgM ELISA test have been coated with unique recombinant antigen mix. The serum sample is diluted in DAI sample diluent and applied to each well. After incubation and washing, the wells of this Scrub Typhus IgM ELISA Kit are treated with IgM enzyme HRP-conjugate. After a second incubation and washing step, TMB substrat is added. An acidic stopping solution is then added and the degree of enzymatic turnover of the substrate is determined by absorbance measurement at 450nm. The absorbance measured is directly proportional to the concentration of IgM antibodies to OT present on the S. typhus IgM ELISA kit. For additional details please refer to the instructions for use.
