DRG Japanese Encephalitis IgG ELISA (EIA-4518)
The JE IgG test for exposure to Japanese Encephalitis Virus (JEV) is an ELISA assay system for the detection of antibodies in human serum to JEV derived recombinant antigen (JERA) (1-4).
This test is to aid in the diagnosis of human exposure to the Japanese Encephalitis Virus (JEV). It is not intended to screen blood or blood components. It is for professional in vitro use only. In the United States this kit is intended for Research Use Only.
SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION OF THE TEST
Exposure to JEV causes a disease with a number of symptoms including encephalitis (5-8).
The JE IgG assay employs a recombinant antigen called JERA, which can be used as a rapid serological marker for JEV infection. The JERA protein is a recombinant antigen, which consists of a stretch of peptides from different parts of the JEV antigens.
