Cryptosporidium/Giardia enzyme immunoassay

Cryptosporidiosis is routinely diagnosed by microscopic analysis of stool samples using organic dyes, or by immunostaining with direct fluorescent antibody, and it can be difficult to detect. Similarly, Giardia lamblia infection is frequently misdiagnosed, relying on poorly performing antigen-based testing. A new enzyme immunoassay (EIA) for the qualitative detection of Cryptosporidium and G. lamblia antigens in human faecal specimens from patients displaying gastrointestinal symptoms, the Prolisa Cryptosporidium/Giardia EIA kit offers precise results with high sensitivity and excellent specificity, enabling accurate diagnosis of infection. This convenient, rapid and easy-to-use method of detecting Cryptosporidium and G. lamblia is supplied in a 96-well test size consisting of detachable stripwells. This assay uses monoclonal anti-Cryptosporidium and anti-G. lamblia antibodies to ensure excellent sensitivity and specificity for high value diagnostic results. It can be performed manually as well as on most automated platforms for increased workflow flexibility.
