Quantitative sandwich ELISA for measuring Human Brucella Antibody IgM (Brucella-Ab-IgM) in samples from cell culture supernatants, serum, whole blood, plasma and other biological fluids.
- Additional information:Brucella is a genus of Gram-negative bacteria, named after David Bruce (1855?1931). They are small (0.5 to 0.7 by 0.6 to 1.5 µm), nonencapsulated, nonmotile, facultatively intracellular coccobacilli. Brucella is the cause of brucellosis, which is a zoonosis transmitted by ingesting contaminated food (such as unpasteurized milk products), direct contact with an infected animal, or inhalation of aerosols. Transmission from human to human, for example through sexual intercourse or from mother to child, is exceedingly rare, but possible. Minimum infectious exposure is between 10 and 100 organisms.
- Storage and shipping:All of the components are shipped on ice packs/blue ice. Upon receiving the kit keep it at +4 degrees Celsius for up to 1 year (refer to the label on the box for the exact expiration date).
- Notes:This kit is intended for research use only. It should not be used for human or animal clinical diagnostics or treatment.
