epstein barr virus elisa

– useful and reliable

the drg epstein-barr virus (ebna-1) igm enzyme immunoassay kit is a useful and reliable kit for measurement of igmclass antibodies to epstein-barr virus nuclear-1 antigen (ebv-ebna-1) in serum.

test principle

the drg epstein-barr virus (ebna-1) igm elisa kit is a solid phase enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa).

patient samples are diluted with sample diluent and additionally incubated with igg-rf-sorbent, containing hyper-immune anti-human igg-class antibody to eliminate competitive inhibition from specific igg and to remove rheumatoid factors. this pretreatment avoids false negative or false positive results.

microtiter wells as a solid phase are coated with recombinant ebv nuclear-1 antigen.

diluted patient specimens and ready-for-use controls are pipetted into these wells. during incubation ebna-1-specific antibodies of positive specimens and controls are bound to the immobilized antigens.

after a washing step to remove unbound sample and control material horseradish peroxidase conjugated anti-human igm antibodies are dispensed into the wells. during a second incubation this anti-igm conjugate binds specifically to igm antibodies resulting in the formation of enzyme-linked immune complexes.

after a second washing step to remove unbound conjugate the immune complexes formed (in case of positive results) are detected by incubation with tmb substrate and development of a blue color. the blue color turns into yellow by stopping the enzymatic indicator reaction with sulfuric acid.

the intensity of this color is directly proportional to the amount of ebna-1-specific igm antibody in the patient specimen. absorbance at 450 nm is read using an elisa microtiter plate reader.
