Storage Instruction:Store the kit at 4°C. Description:
The Diagnostic Automation Sm/RNP Enzyme- Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) is intended for the detection and semi-quantization of antibodies to Sm/RNP complex in human sera. The assay is to be used to detect antibodies in a single serum specimen. The results of the assay are to be used as an aid to the diagnosis of autoimmune disease. This is a high complexity test for in vitro diagnostic use.
Sm/RNP antigens are attached to a solid phase microassay well. Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assays (ELISA) relies on the ability of biological materials (i.e., antigens) to adsorb to plastic surfaces such as polystyrene (solid phase). When antigens bound to the solid phase are brought into contact with a patient's serum, antigen specific antibody, if present, will bind to the antigen on the solid phase forming antigen- antibody complexes
