SERION ELISA classic
The SERION ELISA classic Bordetella pertussis IgA, IgG and IgM tests are quantitative and qualitative immunoassays for the detection of human antibodies in serum or plasma directed against Bordetella pertussis and Bordetella parapertussis for the laboratory confirmation of whooping cough. The differential detection of individual antibody classes supports the categorization of the disease stage.
- Sensitive demonstration of IgM antibodies for diagnosis of acute primary infections, particularly in children
- Detection of IgA and IgG antibodies for laboratory confirmation of whooping cough as well as for differential diagnosis in case of atypical pneumonia
- Detection of Bordetella parapertussis mediated infections (ca. 15% of all cases of whooping cough)
- Results of IgA and IgG antibody activity are expressed in IU/ml referenced to the first international standard of the WHO
