New products for Chlamydia diagnostics

EUROIMMUN Anti-Chlamydia ELISAs (IgA, IgG, IgM) are now available as new screening tests. The ELISAs employ antigens from both C. trachomatis and C. pneumoniae, for example genus-specific LPS (lipopolysaccharide), OMPs (outer membrane proteins) and MOMP (major outer membrane protein), ensuring that antibodies against both species are reliably detected.

EUROIMMUN also offers immunoblots for antibody detection. In the Anti-Chlamydia trachomatis EUROLINE-WB (IgA, IgG) three different antigen categories are used:
1) An electrophoretically separated antigen extract from C. trachomatis
2) Chlamydia-cross-reacting LPS (contained in the antigen extract)
3) Highly specific recombinantly produced MOMP antigens
This combination ensures high sensitivity and specificity.

Advantages of the Anti-C. trachomatis EUROLINE-WB at a glance:

  • Unique combination of 3 antigen categories: cross-reacting LPS, specific WB bands and species-specific MOMP
  • Very good agreement with results from precharacterised sera (INSTAND)
  • Good correlation with competitor tests
  • Very high sensitivity and specificity
  • Identical incubation times for all EUROIMMUN infection blots, for easy parallel processing
  • Automated incubation and software-based evaluation
