Human Alpha-1 antitrypsin (A1AT) immunoassay kit
For the quantitative determination of human Alpha-1 antitrypsin concentrations in serum and plasma samples
Antibodies against DNA are distinguished into two different types: antibodies against double stranded, native DNA (dsDNA) and antibodies against single-stranded, denatured DNA. The dsDNA-speicific antibodies (anti-dsDNA) are considered a specific marker for systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), due to the high clinical associations [1-3]. The presence of these autoantibodies could be virtually diagnostic for SLE [1, 3]. In fact, anti-dsDNA antibodies may be present in patients even before they develop clinical features of SLE [2, 4]. Therefore, monitoring the condition of anti-dsDNA antibodies is essential for maintaining the healthy condition as well as identifying the progression of SLE. Moreover, the identification of anti-dsDNA antibodies in other pathological conditions and in healthy subjects is very rare (less than 0.5%) .
The linearity of Anti-dsDNA ELISA (IgG) was determined by assaying 8 serial dilutions of 5 serum samples. The linear regreassion was calculated, calculated, R2 amounting to >0.97 within the concentration range of 5 IU/mL to 600 IU/mL.
The reproducibility of the test was investigated by determine the intra- and inter-assay coefficients of variation using 3 sera. The Intra-assay CVs are based on 20 determinations and the inter-assay CVs on 4 determinations performed in 6 different plates.
