1. SARS-CoV-2 spike protein-immobilized plate
2. HRP-conjugated anti-human IgM antibody
3. HRP-conjugated anti-human IgG antibody
4. Washing buffer（10× PBST）
5. Non-fat milk (for blocking buffer)
6. Diluent buffer (10×)
7. R-1: Chromogenic substrate (TMB)
8. R-2: Stop reagent (1 mol/L hydrochloric acid)
9. Microplate seal
The immobilized SARS-CoV-2 recombinant spike protein on a plate is reacted with the antibody (hereinafter referred to as anti-spike protein antibody) in a sample that recognizes it.
After the reaction, the sample is removed by washing.
React anti-spike protein antibody in the plate with HRP (horseradish peroxidase)- conjugated anti-human IgM / IgG antibodies.
Remove excess HRP-conjugated anti-human IgM / IgG antibodies by washing. Add a chromogenic substrate and measure the absorbance.
Significance of measurement
This kit is a research ELISA kit to detect human IgM and IgG antibodies that recognize the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2, the causative virus of Covid-19.
Virus detection can be broadly divided into two approaches: one is to detect the virus itself, such as PCR method, and the other is to detect the immune response that develops during infection (IgG, IgM, IgA). In common infections, IgM is an antibody produced early in the infection and disappears with relief of symptoms. IgG begins to be produced later than IgM and continues to be produced for months after healing. This is known to reduce the symptoms of the next infection or to prevent the onset of the next infection
