The effective detection of the coronavirus is essential. RT-PCR (Real-time polymerase chain reaction) tests are currently being used to detect genetic material to perform coronavirus testing. However, these tests have low specificity and sensitivity and carry risks related to sample collection and sample handling. These risks can be reduced by using IgG or IgM ELISA kits. IgM is the first immunoglobulin to be produced in response to an antigen and is primarily detected during the early onset of disease.1 IgG on the other hand is the most common immunoglobulin produced in response to an infection. Antibody titer is 4 times or higher than that of the acute phase. IgG often remains in the body over the long term. Clinicians and researchers use ELISA kits to estimate antibodies in samples of COVID-19 patients.
antibodies-online offers a handpicked selection of proven SARS-CoV-2 ELISA Kits for the detection of COVID-19 IgG and IgM in human samples.
