Human Cytomegalovirus IgM ELISA Kit

Short Description:

Human Cytomegalovirus IgM (HCMV-IgM) ELISA Kit is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the qualitative detection of IgM-class antibodies to Human Cytomegalovirus in human serum or plasma. It is intended to be used in clinical laboratories for diagnosis and management of patients related to infection with Human Cytomegalovirus. HCMV is one of the most important causes of congenital malformations in humans. Primary or new recurrent infections in pregnant women can cause intrauterine or perinatal infections in newborns. 80% of fetuses infected with HCMV during primary pregnancy can develop symptoms such as mental retardation, impaired vision, and hearing loss. Primary HCMV infection has serious and even life-threatening consequences for immunosuppressed patients, and the mortality rate of interstitial pneumonia due to HCMV infection in bone marrow transplantation is as high as 75%. Recently, HCMV has been found to be one of the sources of opportunistic infections in AIDS patients.

This kit detects Human Cytomegalovirus IgM antibody (HCMV-IgM) in human serum or plasma samples, polystyrene microwell strips are pre-coated with antibodies directed to human immunoglobulin M protein (anti-µ chain).  After first adding serum or plasma specimens to be examined, the IgM antibodies in the specimen can be captured, and other unbound components (including specific IgG antibodies) will be removed by washing.  In the second step, the HRP (horseradish peroxidase)-conjugated antigens will specifically react only with HCMV IgM antibodies. After washing to remove the unbound HRP-conjugate, chromogen solutions are added into the wells. In presence of (anti- µ) -(HCMV-lgM) -(HCMV Ag-HRP) immunocomplex, after washing the plate, the TMB substrate was added for color development, and the HRP connected to the complex catalyzes the color developer reaction to generate the blue substance, add 50 µI of Stop Solution, and turn yellow. The presence of the absorbance of the HCMV-IgM antibody in the sample was determined by a microplate reader.
