Chikungunya IgM Elisa Detection Kit
Chikungunya has recently emerged as an important arboviral infection of medical importance, with explosive outbreaks in many areas of India and Indian Ocean islands. There is no effective therapy or prophylaxis available against this disease. Therefore early diagnosis plays an important role in proper control and effective management of patients.
This kit is based on indirect ELISA principle, using recombinant Chikungunya protein antigen. The wells of ELISA plate was coated with recombinant Chikungunya antigens. The Chikungunya specific antibodies present in the test sera bind with antigen. The reaction was further processed with the addition of antihuman IgM-HRP conjugate. The reaction was observed through colorimetric interaction with chromogen. Color development is indicative of the presence of Chikungunya virus specific IgM antibodies in the test sample.
