Mouse - Total Immunoglobulin Assay Kits

Total immunoglobulin isotype levels correlate to health or pathological conditions such as hypo- or hyper-gammaglobulinemia, and acute or chronic infections (1-5).  In addition, total immunoglobulin levels are often analyzed relative to antigen-specific antibody levels to evaluate immune function in patients and animal disease models.  Chondrex, Inc. provides mouse total immunoglobulin isotype ELISA kits for IgA, IgE, IgM, and IgG, as well as IgG subtypes: IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b, and IgG3, along with anti-antigen antibody ELISA kits, such as autoantigens (ssDNA and dsDNA), dietary proteins (collagen and OVA), and bacteria (S. aureus, E. coli and LPS). 

In addition, these total immunoglobulin ELISA kits are also suitable for quantifying monoclonal antibody and polyclonal antibody isotype and/or subtype, as well as for establishing reliable antibody production monitoring and quality control methods.

The gut barrier plays important roles in maintaining intestinal homeostasis (6-9). Oral immunization of ovalbumin (OVA) with cholera toxin-adjuvant enhances intestinal IgA against OVA. The immune response can be evaluated using the anti-OVA IgA antibody levels compared with total IgA levels. The following protocol may be useful for these studies.
