Lab Reagents: Immuno Reagents

Immuno Reagents from the Source Medicago develops and manufactures a wide range of immuno reagents, including monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies as well as antigens from bacteria, parasites and other sources plus synthetically manufactured antigens and antigen analogues. We also offer complete kits for the in vitro diagnosis of parasite diseases in rabbits and rodents. These include Carbon Immuno Assay (CIA) for Encephalitozoon cuniculi and Enzyme Linked Immunoassay (ELISA) for E. cuniculi and T. gondii. Scientists at Medicago have broad experience in the production and purification of antibodies used in the general in vitro diagnostics markets. We provide full service from design of the antigen and immunisation protocol to immunisation, harvesting, fusion, sub-cloning and production. We have developed special expertise in producing monoclonal antibodies against very small molecules (molecular weights down to 190 g/mol) by binding an antigen molecule analogue to a larger carrier protein in order to induce immune response. Our antibodies are developed in mice, rats, rabbits, goats and other animals. •Highest quality •Highly purified antigens and antibodies •Complete kits for in vitro diagnostics •Kits for CIA and ELISA techniques •Highly active antiserum .

Encephalitozoon cuniculi CIA (Carbon Immuno Assay)

Encephalitozoon cuniculi is a parasite that causes encephalitozoonosis in animals and humans. Rabbits and rodents may be infected with EC, resulting in chronic disease. Infection can persist for a long time without clinical signs.

Product description

Encephalitozoon cuniculi is a parasite that causes encephalitozoonosis in animals and humans. Rabbits and rodents may be infected with EC, resulting in chronic disease. Infection can persist for a long time without clinical signs.

To avoid misleading experimental results, laboratory animals should be tested before use. Note that the disease can occur sporadically, and is apparently unrelated to the age or sex of the animals. Clinical signs include stunted growth and signs of central nervous damage due to granulomatous encephalitis and nephritis. Other diseases can, however, give rise to the same neurological symptoms, which can make correct diagnosis difficult.

Medicago's Carbon Immuno Assay is a quick (5-minute) and easy test to screen populations of rabbits and guinea pigs for encephaliotozoonosis, or to verify a putative clinical diagnosis of E. cuniculi infection. Sera from some other animal species and humans can also be tested.

The kit contains reagents and controls necessary to perform 100 CIA determinations.
