#9800 Anisakidae IgG ELISA
ELISA kit for the diagnosis of human digestive anisakidosis

Parasitology and clinical relevance

Anisakidosis is caused by some sea fish nematodes of the family Anisakidae. Humans can be infected by eating raw or undercooked contaminated fish meat. Most infected people do not show any symptoms. However, in some cases, symptoms appear at the gastric stage (epigastric pain, nausea and vomiting), intestinal stage (abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea) or at the allergic stage (hives, pruritus, angioedema and bronchospasm). Diagnosis is based on 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 both digestive and allergic anisakidosis.


96 determinations of IgG antibodies using standard methodologies.

Wells sensitized with E/S antigens from cultivated larvae of Anisakidae.

8-wells polystyrene breakable strips: useful and economic format for laboratories with a small workload.

CE registration: CH-202201-0009

Sensitivity and specificity

The test detects IgG antibodies against parasites of Anisakidae family in human serum.

A sensitivity of 97% was found with 38 sera from patients suffering from digestive and/or allergic anisakidosis.

A specificity of 97% was found with 180 sera of blood donors (Swiss).

A specificity of 96% was found with 98 sera from patients of an infectiology unit (Swiss).

A specificity of 86% was found with 43 sera from anisakidosis suspected patients but where this disease had been certainly ruled out.

A specificity of 81% was found with 47 sera of patients with other parasitic infections.
