#9750 Trichinella spiralis
ELISA kit for the diagnosis of trichinellosis in humans
Parasitology and clinical relevance
is caused by Trichinella spiralis, a parasitic nematode of pork, horse
and wild animals. Humans can be infected by eating raw or undercooked meat from
infected animals. Most infected people do not show any symptoms. However, in
some cases, symptoms appear during intestinal stage (diarrhea and abdominal
pain<9 and muscular stage (muscle pain, fever, edema). Diagnosis is based
signs and symptoms, but,
in many cases it is not conclusive for the diagnosis. Serological assays
has an important place on the final diagnosis of the disease. Our ELISA kit have
shown appropriate performances for the serological screening of trichinellosis.
96 determinations of IgG antibodies using standard methodologies.
Wells sensitized with E/S antigens from cultivated larvae of Trichinella
8-wells polystyrene breakable strips: useful and economic format for laboratories with a small workload.
CE registration: CH-202002-0011
