Test ID: ECHNO    
Echinococcus Antibody, IgG, Serum

Method Description Describes how the test is performed and provides a method-specific reference

Purified antigens are bonded to a microwell plate. Antibodies that are present in the patient samples attach themselves to the antigens and are determined during the second phase of the test by using enzyme-labelled antihuman antibodies (the conjugate). The enzyme converts the colorless substrate (urea peroxide/TMP) to a blue endproduct. The enzyme reaction is stopped by adding sulfuric acid. The colour of the mixture then switches from blue to yellow. A final measurement is carried out in a photometer at 450 nm using a reference wavelength of > or =620 nm.(Package insert: RIDASCREEN Echinococcus IgG. R-Biopharm AG: 09/2015)
