What are ELISA Kits?
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, or ELISA Kits, are useful tools in the medical field and the research field. They detect the presence of antibodies in a sample.
How are they used?
In the body, when an antigen or harmful substance is present, the response is to produce antibodies. The antibodies then to work warding off the antigens. ELISA Kits work by detecting these antibodies and thus identifying what antigens the body is currently trying to fight off.
What do the results indicate?
In the medical field, ELISA tests can be useful in identifying all kinds of diseases. These include HIV or AIDS, syphilis, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and many more. Surprisingly, they have wider applications, too. For example, ELISA tests are useful in the food industry to detect potential food allergens, such as milk, nuts, and eggs.
