HDM ELISA kits

With the release of our house dust mite ELISA kits we have extended our HDM product catalogus. For the house dust mite D. pteronyssinus we have the Der p 1 ELISA kit and Der p 2 ELISA kit available. For the house dust mite D. farinae we have the Der f 1 ELISA kit. Currently we are busy with the development of the Der f 2 ELISA kit which will follow later this year. Especially the Der p 2 ELISA kit is unique because until now there was no specific ELISA for Der p 2 available.

Because you may be familiar with the ELISA kits from other suppliers we have made an instructional video which shows how to use our ELISA kit. One ELISA kit is sufficient for the coating of five 96-Wells plates. The kit contains:

  • 1 vial with capture antibody
  • 1 vial with detection antibody
  • 5 vials with the allergen (Der p 2, Der p 1 or Der f 1) standard

Our ELISA standard

Every ELISA kit requires a standard which is crucial for its accuracy and being able to compare results to other available ELISA’s. Currently there are no standards available for house dust mite research using major allergens Der p 1, Der p 2, Der f 1, and Der f 2. To measure a novel substance with an ELISA assay such as Der f 1 a new standard needs to be developed which is subject to extensive examination as established by the European and international Pharmacopoeias.

The ELISA kit standards are calibrated against the Citeq golden standards. These standards were developed based on what is currently the state of art e.g. described in Chapter 5.12 in the European pharmacopoeia using the mass of several batches of natural purified proteins with a purity of >98%. With this trusted standard we provide you with an accurate and reliable ELISA kit.

We have chosen to divide the standard into 5 vials so you can use 1 vial per plate instead of 1 large vial for multiple plates. All of the material will be delivered in freeze-dried form so you are assured of a stable product and longer shelf-life.
